Tomorrow begins Banned Books Week in which we celebrate two of the most precious rights of humankind: Freedom of Speech and Freedom to Read & Learn.
I’d like to start a meme. Would everyone in our little circle, sometime within the next week, like to post something about a book they have read that was judged by someone, at some point, to be offensive, salacious, or otherwise an affront to “good people?”
In short, rude, crude and socially unacceptable? 😉
(In fact, I’ll do that one.)
And if you don’t have a blog (*ahem*Caty*), I’d be happy to post your piece here.
It of course leaves off many of the books that various school districts have tried to ban, such as Catcher in the Rye, To Kill and Mockingbird and Slaughterhouse Five.
