Banned Books Week! Reading as Protest

26 Sep

What is your favorite banned book?  From the lists that the American Library Association has published, I think my two favorites are The Awakening by Chopin and Their Eyes Were Watching God by Hurston.  I have to give a shout out to my high school and college teachers who put those books on my desk! And those were southern Idaho teachers…wonderful women and men, indeed.

The ALA has a great listing and discussion.
