E-book on ‘Peter Boy’ hurtful for family
Outrageous. How unbelievably unconscionable of Lillian Koller to write an e-book outlining the lives and abuses of Peter Boy Kema and his siblings, without authorization from the family. And for what purpose? There can’t possibly be anyone in the state who has not known and agonized over the story, so it can’t have been to “inform.”
What else then, but to sensationalize? Koller states that the information used was in the public domain and that her intentions were good. That’s completely irrelevant. Simply put, it is not her story to tell. To do so without the knowledge and permission of the family is reprehensible.
