Freedom to Read 2011 -Even More and More! September 29, 2011

From sea to shining sea, everyone’s talking about our freedom to read! On the East Coast, The Washington Post is responsible for an interesting blog posting on the topic and they point out that the mention of drugs has become the current subject matter to cause the most challenges. On the West Coast, the Los Angeles Times has an article that should get some people talking! To the way far away European coastline of the United Kingdom with a list of 100 great banned books!

I think it’s the wide variety of lists from such a wide variety of sources that makes me appreciate our Freedom to Read Week celebrations. It’s not that I am busy envisioning myself, or anyone else really, standing in front of a bonfire with my arms outstretched to block the tossing of books on the pile. Instead, I am envisioning people being surprised into a discussion, or even some personal contemplation, about the world we live in now vs. what we want the world to become and how books, the good and the bad, make a difference. Right?

Still reading?
