How appropriate that I have been reading this book...since my library is currently being challenged by a far right wing of extremists who are seeking to ban books. I don't care if you agree or not with LGBT or Christianity or whatever and what not....IT IS NOT GOOD WHEN WE TRY TO IMPOSE BELIEFS ON OTHERS. (And I say this as a white heterosexual Christian)

I have some killer quotes forthcoming!! Anyone who wants to reflect on the power of words, here from these popular authors who have been "silenced" for one reason or another. It's a good read. And timely.… (mer)

FROM SYNC: Multiple narrators reenact interviews with authors on censorship and free expression. The discussions are between editor Leonard S.

Censorship has been around for a long time. Much of the time it is politically motivated. Is it right for a few to tell everyone what they can and cannot read or say? Hear what some famous authors have to say about their experiences with censorship.
The interview format of this compilation of stories about authors who have faced censorship brings to light the true feelings of people being silenced for presenting their own cultures and views. These stories could be selected to be read aloud to start the conversation about censorship. It would make a great addition to a banned books week display. Students will be able to read about how real people are affected by censorship not just the books.… (mer)
