We have received threats of potentially inappropriate and unsafe behavior at the NYC story hour with Chaya Raichik on Sunday and have advised Chaya we cancel the event. With children being involved, we don’t want to take any chances.

An upcoming New York City book event hosted by “LibsofTikTok” account owner and conservative children’schildren’s book author Chaya Raichik was canceled after receiving threats.
“Brave Books,” the publisher of Raichik’sRaichik’s conservative children’schildren’s book “No More Secrets: The Candy Cavern,” tweeted Friday that its Sunday story hour featuring Raichik, and Brave Books CEO Trent Talbot, had been canceled due to threats of “unsafe behavior” from some attendees.
The publisher wrote, “We have received threats of potentially inappropriate and unsafe behavior at the NYC story hour with Chaya Raichik on Sunday and advised Chaya to cancel the event.”
“We don’t want to take any chances with children being involved,” they added.
“We will find a way to combat this moving forward. Stay tuned for an announcement in the coming days.”

On the page was a picture of the event’s flyer, which showed Raichik and Talbot clutching their picture books.
It suggested that the drag queen story hour, hosted by New York officials, including Attorney General Letitia James, the same Sunday, was a competing event to the contentious story hour.
Some conservatives voiced their opinion blasting ”Brave Books” for caving to the left-wing mob canceling the event.
When will you be changing the name since "Brave" no longer fits?

You let threats of violence from wokes cancel you? Please. This is absurd. This is self-cancellation. Why didn't you just call the police? Disgusting.

That’s exactly what we can’t have in our society. We can’t have an angry mob that appears out of nowhere to silence people they don’t like. Get some law enforcement there and allow her to speak. That’s insane.

The radical left will continue these hateful tactics as long as they know the threat of violence works.
