Celebrate Banned Book Week

Read a book... don't BAN a book. Sheesh. I swear the world is falling apart. Some school districts and towns seem to be taking this literally as YA authors all around the country are coming under fire. And now teachers in a school in Kentucky are not allowed to wear a tee shirt with this quote on it because it constitutes political activity. Seriously? I think Banned Book Week is a reading activity. Something libraries and book stores have consistently promoted to encourage kids to read. Maybe it's time for another book Mr. Bradbury...
