Enjoy a banned book this week
What do To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Ask Alice, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn have in common? They've all been banned, or challenged--and not in the prehistory of the 20th century, but in the last two years. So do your bit against the ignorant and benighted and participate in Banned Books Week. It's as easy as going to your bookshelf and having a "forbidden" experience between the covers, as I did once with the notorious Judy Blume.
