Leslie Feinberg Speaks Out, Estranged Relative Responds

Leslie Feinberg has published a letter to the community and asked for help circulating it. The letter accuses Feinberg's estranged birth sibling of co-opting Feinberg's life story into a young-adult novel.

Who is the relative in question? Catherine Ryan Hyde, who wrote Pay it Forward, among other things.

You can read Leslie's letter here:

And because I'm a journalist and feel obligated, Catherine Ryan Hyde's response is here, too:

You decide,
K.
