Katie ISD cancels performances with best-selling author over vulgar tweets

The neighborhood is now gaining attention due to the cancellation of a New York Times bestselling author’s visit.

Emma Straub, author of children’s books, was due to speak at two elementary school campuses last Friday.

On Thursday, the county canceled those appearances, saying it found the author had used the F word in some of her social media posts.

In a letter sent to parents, KISD stated that the language was not in line with school and community values.

KHOU 11 News reached out to Straub’s team for comment but received no response.
