Alice Walker, author and activist, joins a growing group of artists and entertainers who are boycotting Israel for its treatment of Palestinians in what many are calling apartheid practices.
Ms. Walker has refused to allow Yediot Books to publish in Hebrew her Pulitzer Prize winning novel turned movie turned Broadway Musical.
“Thank you so much for wishing to publish my novel THE COLOR PURPLE.
