Now My #1 Most Need-To-Read Book This Summer!

Thanks, Booker T. Washington High School in Pensacola, Fl! By pulling this book from your students’  summer reading list, you’ve just helped me decide what I should read next (in fact, I’ve already placed a hold at my local library):

Book banning seems so…19th century, doesn’t it? As it happens, attempts at banning books are happening left and right in our fair country, all the time—The American Library Association keeps a running list on their site; they report 307 challenges in 2013 alone, as documented by the Office for Intellectual Freedom. One of my all-time faves? A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. What’s your favorite banned book? Write in and let us know!

    And by the way, thanks for your Jane Yolen interview…I just read The Devil’s Arithmetic, which I did not know about and will hand off to Esme. Keep up these great posts!!
