Which is that? Banned Books Week! Duhh.
First off, I never wrote my post back in April when 2014’s most banned books were initially announced. So here’s the list:
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.
And Tango Makes Three by Jason Richardson and Peter Parnell.
The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.
It’s Perfectly Normal by Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley.
Saga (comic book series).
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
A Stolen Life by Jaycee Dugard.
Drama by Raina Telgemeier.
These were the most challenged books last year. And I’m sure you recognize most or all of them. The best part about Banned Books Week is that events are going on all over the country in support of these books and others that have been challenged.
I haven’t been reading lately, so I won’t say I’m going to read one of these this week. But I think it’d be great to show your support for these books and authors in some way this week. Read a book. Tweet something. Write a blog post. Something.
What are you doing for Banned Books Week?
