Celebrate Your Right to Read!
Banned Books Week is coming up, September 25 – October 1, and I plan to celebrate! At the offices of Laura’s Voice, we’re going to go CRAZY with organic teas and homemade bookmarks! Soft slippers and jazz records turned WAY DOWN low! And stacks of books once challenged or even currently challenged! We’ll have a nurse on speed-dial, just in case the reading is TOO INTENSE.
However, on a serious note, may we never lose our freedom of expression and may we forever appreciate the ability and opportunity to read.
As you plan your reading list for Banned Books Week 2016, keep in mind a few words from Chris Crutcher’s The Sledding Hill. (Shared with permission.)
