Banned Books Week

It’s  Banned Books Week in the U.S. It is time to remember to celebrate our freedom to read (and write) whatever we choose. Whether it’s (GASP!) sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, inequality, witches and wizards, vampires, mental illness, science, cultures, politics, drugs, or just fun fiction, don’t let someone else decide what you are allowed to explore through books.

Here are just a few of my most beloved challenged books:
