PEN American Center Awards Free-Speech Prize To J.K. Rowling

"The free-speech organization PEN American Center says it is giving its 2016 PEN/Allen award to author J.K. Rowling. The prize honors "a critically acclaimed author whose work embodies its mission to oppose repression in any form and to champion the best of humanity."

I'm not sure I see all that in Rowling's work. If looking for it is an excuse to read Harry Potter again, and more closely and deeply, then I'm all for it.
