Celebrate Banned Books Week

Everyone should celebrate Banned Books Week by picking up something from one of the following incredibly subversive authors (top 10 list of most challenged authors from 1990 – 2004):

1. Alvin Schwartz

2. Judy Blume

3. Robert Cormier

4. J.K. Rowling

5. Michael Willhoite

6. Katherine Paterson

7. Stephen King

8. Maya Angelou

9. R.L. Stine

10. John Steinbeck

It’s just shocking to me that we live in a society where anyone advocates a curtailing of freedoms like writing and reading. Just seems like we should be past that point. Except for Stephen King. He should clearly be banned from all work on his own television mini-series.
