Books unite us. Books encourage boundless exploration and allow readers to spread their wings. Stories give flight to new ideas and perspectives. Reading—especially books that set us free—expands our worldview. Censorship, on the other hand, locks away our freedom and divides us from humanity in our own cages.
So, this Banned Books Week,
Read a Banned Book!
Here Are Some Free Ones:
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
