It’s the most wonderful time of the year – Banned Books week –

 

I am so very proud to say that we teach a lot of Banned Books here at OLSM.  I can definitely say that I’m with the Banned!  When I see each year’s list, which always includes the Bible, the Koran, the dictionary and many from what is considered to be the literary canon – I often wonder what chemicals bubble up in a person’s brain to ban a book.  Unfortunately, even in a digital world, attempted censorship seems to never fade away.

Judy Blume, J.K. Rowling, Margaret Mitchell, Galileo and Antonio Rosmini are all banned authors.  Read them today!  Let the flame of independent thought burn bright!
