Banned Books Week, September 24-September 30
Banned Books Week starts tomorrow.
Anyone who knows me would never tell me not to read a book. That person would get the full force of my lady rage. And it’s a rage that burns fire!
Seriously, folks, if a book bothers you, don’t allow it in your home! Although, if you have children, telling them not to read something makes them only want to read it more! Reading a banned book opens the reader up to new ideas, concepts, and words. You don’t have to agree with the opinions expressed, but as a college prof once told our class, “knowing things is good.”
Expand your mind. Read a banned book.
Does the concept of reading a banned book offend you?
How about helping me celebrate the freedom to read?
