Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week starts in the U.S. tomorrow. Did you know that since 1982, there have been more than 10,000 challenges to books in schools and libraries in the United States ā€“ an average of 500 per year!

Good grief. Thanks to City Lights (the best bookstore!) for fighting the fight and the great picture of Lawrence Ferlinghetti in front of the store.
