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!

I will read this too!
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!!
Thank you, Traci! Can’t wait to talk about it with you!
