Today begins Banned Book Week, a time to celebrate free speech and challenged and banned books. It is also a time to mourn the loss of literature and ideas that result from the removal of materials from libraries, bookstores and classrooms. Though we fight against challenges and bans all year long, this week gives us a chance to remember and educate those who think banning is a thing of the past.
This week I'll be posting reviews of banned and challenged books, and I'll also be hosting giveaways of each book I review. Please keep checking back to see if I've posted the reviews, and keep reading (no matter who tells you you shouldn't)!
