In honor of banned books week, I'll be giving away some of my favorites -- seedy classics like TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD and THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD. And I'm giving away a copy of Laurie Halse Anderson's SPEAK. I believe the best response to some nut-job's attempt at banning books is to gift those books to readers. #SPEAKLOUDLY
If you want to read more about censorship and banning books, I encourage you to visit the blog of the Goddess of YA Literature, Terri Lesesne. Her response to the attempt at banning books in Missouri is nothing short of brilliant. Check this out: http://professornana.livejournal.com/
See you at the festival!
