Now Available: A Book Written by Charlie Hebdo‘s Editor-in-Chief, Completed Just Before His Death

Stéphane Charbonnier was the editor-in-chief of Charlie Hebdo before he was gunned down in the shooting last year along with several of his colleagues.

Two days before his murder, “Charb” completed the manuscript for a book focusing on the very issues that provoked Islamic terrorists to kill him: Free speech, hypocrisy, and satire. That book is finally being published in English today.

It’s called Open Letter: On Blasphemy, Islamophobia, and the True Enemies of Free Expression:

According to the book description:

Here, published for the first time in English, is Charb’s final work. A searing criticism of hypocrisy and racism, and a rousing, eloquent defense of free speech, Open Letter shows Charb’s words to be as powerful and provocative as his art. This is an essential book about race, religion, the voice of ethnic minorities and majorities in a pluralistic society, and above all, the right to free expression and the surprising challenges being leveled at it in our fraught and dangerous time.

Give it a day. I’m sure we’ll hear from people who use this book to argue Charb brought the massacre upon himself.
