Some Fun with Banned Books

So let’s start off with a little bit of fun with banned books this week. Here is a quiz I just discovered that should tell you:

Which Banned Book Are You?

I got Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi! Persepolis

I also wanted to make sure I share the link to the Banned Books Virtual Readout. This is where various people; librarians, authors, celebrities, families at home, film themselves reading a banned book, and share it with the rest of the world. There is some criteria to follow, which you can find by going HERE to the Banned Books website.

BBW Virtual ReadoutOver 200 people have already put up their videos! Check ’em out, you might just see some of your own favorite books being shared!

And something a little less fun, here’s a challenge just in time for Banned Books Week. Ironically enough, apparently, some parents want to ban Persepolis from some high school libraries in Oregon. I hope everyone will band together to support keeping this book in the school district! Show this librarian some love, people!
