Banned Books Week is this week! Banned Books Week is when we celebrate our Freedom To Read! Many books have been challenged/banned all throughout schools and communities in the United States. Banning books and other information can be a very harmful form of censorship. For more information on challenged and banned books follow the following links:
Teaching Tolerance magazine had a great article last week about LGBT issues. What Love, Simon Can Teach Us About Classroom Conversations.
This is quite timely since I have recently added the book The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater to our library collection. If you haven't read it, come to the library to check it out :)
