Last day of #bannedbooksweek. Here is my #bannedbooksselfie. Librarians do more than shush people! 😝 they fight censorship and work to ensure access to materials for everyone. Read a banned book and hug a librarian! #perksofbeingawallflower ❤️
Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. — Alfred Whitney Griswald
Banned Books Mugshots: Alaska Young (Looking for Alaska), Janie Crawford (Their Eyes Were Watching God), Holden Caulfield (The Catcher in the Rye), Harry Potter (Harry Potter), and Hester Prynne (The Scarlet Letter).
