Banned Books Week

It’s Banned Books Week.  Apologies, I have not had time, and am not going to have time, to put up my usual display celebrating banned books.

But, if you wish to engage in a conversation with me, please feel free.  Drop by, or simply check out a banned book.

Visit the American Library Asociation (ALA) website dedicated to the issue:  Banned Books Week.
