Banned Book Week

Tough questions…

Confronting banned books makes you stop and think. Why do I feel this way? Are my feelings valid, biased, or conflicted? If you stop and think about it, you can probably understand why a parent would want to ban a book. But choosing books for your child  is a right of each parent, not a school board or other governing body.

That said, some people have gone to jail over their decisions regarding banned books.  What banned book would you go to jail defending?

Me? Probably I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou.

What about you?
