Words Have Power. Read a Banned Book.
Banned Books Week is September 24-30. 2017. Take advantage of this celebration of your freedom to read . . . anything and everything you want! You might want to tackle one the Top Ten Challenged Books of 2016 or one of the most frequently challenged books. Or maybe you'll choose a title that's a perfect thematic match. I'm planning to read Ban This Book by Alan Gratz. It is the inspiring tale of a fourth-grader whose favorite book is banned from the school library. She fights back by starting an illegal library in her own locker. Whatever YOU choose, rejoice in the fact that you have a CHOICE.
So much is happening in the next few days, I decided to consolidate all the information into a single blog post. You're welcome.
