Every year Independent Bookstore Day creates a signature “Bad Citizen” Graffiti Stencil to highlight the authors and the words that push us to think, read, and be disruptive when necessary. This year’s stencil features a timely quote from Susan Sontag: Courage is as contagious as fear. We certainly hope so.
About the author: Susan Sontag was the author of four novels, including In America, which won the 2000 National Book Award for Fiction; a collection of stories; several plays; and seven works of nonfi ction. She died in New York City on December 28, 2004.
