Banned Books Week: a chance to be subversive

Banned Books Week: a chance to be subversive

banned books week

Read Street is ever-vigilant in exposing the vigilantes who try to ban or challenge library books, so we welcome another Banned Books Week.

The American Library Association sponsors the event each year to highlight the nagging issue. Publishers, authors and others are holding their own events. Random House, for example, has a Facebook page on the issue. The Harford County Library has developed a quiz to test your acceptance of these controversial books. And The Baltimore Sun has an interesting photo gallery of banned or challenged books, including “My Friend Flicka,” which made the list because it used the word “bitch” in referring to a female dog.

So enjoy the week, and take this opportunity for a bit of literary subversiveness.
