It’s Banned Books Week, folks, and it’s also a week I need to play catch up to my word count. So today I offer this well-said video on how to appreciate the freedom we have to read what we want.
And by the way, some of my favorite books of all time have been challenged or banned from classrooms and libraries, including Gone With the Wind, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Grapes of Wrath, The Lord of the Rings, and many others. The American Library Assn has a complete list right here.
So what’s your take on banned books? Is there a fave of yours on this list? Is there a time and a place when a book should be banned? When is that time and place? Would love to hear your thoughts. . .
