Banned Book Week September 24-30

Banned Book Week is September 24-30. Book banning is not a thing of the past, last year 323 books were challenged in the US. Among those was Eleanor and Park, by Nebraska author Rainbow Rowell.

 “When these people call Eleanor & Park an obscene story, I feel like they’re saying that rising above your situation isn’t possible. That if you grow up in an ugly situation, your story isn’t even fit for good people’s ears. That ugly things cancel out everything beautiful.
