Banned Books Week!
As the U.S. careens to the political right, it's important to celebrate the now-diminishing freedoms and rights that were handed down to us by the founding fathers. And in that spirit, let's hear a big Yay! for Banned Books Week, which is this week!
Clicking the ALA's official Banned Books Week Web Badge, above or to the left (depending on your browser), will take you to the ALA's Banned Books Week resource page, which is chock full of links, like this one which is to Google's list of books that have been banned, or that people have tried to ban. It still amazes me every time I hear that people are trying to ban Judy Blume's wonderful books.
The ALA would like you to display their Web Badge on your blog, too. You can read about it here. If you need a place to host the gif file, you can link to my copy. It's at http://beaglewriter.com/blog/images/bannedbooksweek.gif.
And I love the name of this web site:
