Celebrate Banned Books Week by reading

Cover of "Crank"Cover of Crank
It's Banned Books Week in the US (Sept. 25- Oct. 2) so celebrate by your freedom of choice by reading one of the wonderful titles that someone has tried to keep from us.  You can get a list from your library or go to ALA's website for ideas on how you can keep intellectual freedom alive in America.  Personally, I think I may be rereading Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson and if I have time, I'll crack Ellen Hopkins Crank.  Both books have been challenged and both are books that need to be available to young readers.
