Banned Book Week Discussion

Yesterday, six teens showed up for our annual Banned Books Week book discussion.  This is a fun meeting because you don't have to actually read a specific book to show up!  Instead, we talk about a list of books that ranges from children's books to popular series to classics that people read for school.  Everyone has read something on that list, whether it's Junie B. Jones or Animal Farm.  It's amazing how many of our school-assigned summer reading books have been challenged or banned somewhere!  We talked about a lot of issues and had a really interesting conversation.  Celebrate your freedom to read...come check something out of the library!  :)
