Thank you to everyone who joined the October 2023 discussion of this book, one of the most challenged book in the United States over the last few years. As a follow up to our discussion, here are some resources related to current book ban attempts.
There have been 8 ban attempts in Colorado challenging 136 different titles.
The Brooklyn Public Library has a donation effort to support persons under 18 in getting a virtual library card to access restricted titles: Books Unbanned | Brooklyn Public Library (bklynlibrary.org). They also have a podcast mini series titled "Borrowed and Banned" that "tells the story of America's ideological war with its bookshelves."
My call to action: review these lists of challenged/banned books, look in your home (or the library) and select one or more to read with children you know. If you take on this challenge: complete the reading log and return to me via email [firstname.lastname@example.org] and I'm happy to send you some free goodies.
