Megan Fox and Kevin DuJan are releasing their first book, “Shut Up! The Bizarre War that One Public Library Waged Against the First Amendment” this May, 2016.
“If anyone in the media had been the least bit interested in reporting the true story about “The Great Library War” they might have been nominated for a Pulitzer. It has everything! Sex, government corruption, child porn, a gold heist, libel, slander, defamation, lawsuits, death and rape threats, police harassment, a SLAPP, cloak and dagger intrigue, fruits, 7 pounds of Italian beef and 2 large jugs of peppers, and special interest groups out to sabotage a suburban mom and her whimsical gay friend.
The cast of characters who make an appearance in this book is unmatched in recent history. Just think of who they could get to play all these roles for the movie! There’s the awkward sibling of a beloved TV icon; a national hero from the Reagan administration; a former playboy model, jewel thief, ex-wife of a Chicago Bear, ex-girlfriend of an infamous mobster who turned state’s evidence against him (and those last four are all the same person!); Our Ladies of the Perpetually Furrowed Brows; the heiress to the Comiskey baseball diamonds; the World’s Oldest Child; a former United States Senate candidate from Illinois (who is more famous for once being married to a Sci-Fi starlet who flew around the universe in a spaceship); the King of Journalism; a gargoyle; someone who sold his soul on eBay (like it was a good thing); hot cops; crisis managers; Beverly Goldberg; two former gubernatorial candidates; some of the best lawyers in the whole damn world (pitted against clearly some of the worst); Attorney General Lisa Madigan; The Young Turks; Chicago’s worst reporters; a lookalike for Amy Sedaris; SNL’s Weekend Update; Mayor McCheese; Ashley Judd; distinguished federal judges; the Karate Kid; famous legal scholars; fearless watchdogs; sexually harassed whistleblowers; and the
nation’s leading expert on the dangers to children in public libraries.”
