Happy Banned Books Week

Thanks to Jake and Jessamyn, I was reminded that this is Banned Books Week. During this week the American Library Association publishes its list of the books to receive the most “challenges” (attempts to remove or restrict access to books in a library) in the previous year. So go out and read a challenged book. There’s quite a list to work from, including The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn at #7 (if there is a Hall of Fame for challenged authors, Mark Twain is surely in it).
