Banned Books?

I encourage you to read a banned book. Let's support the first amendment and send a clear message to those in power all around the world that the freedoms to think, learn and grow are inherent for all humans.

Check out this list of books that have been banned in 2009 and 2010:

Yes, you will find Junie B. Jones, Harry Potter and A Wrinkle in Time on this list, among others.

Check one of these treasures out of your local library or buy one at your bookstore this week!
