Google book search can be used to explore the best of books which have been banned in the past. They have set up a special page for this: Celebrate your Freedom to Read. Now you can read one of lcwk86’s favorites, To Kill a Mockingbird, or many others. We should never create a hostile environment for people who feel the need to challenge books, but at the same time, it is good to look back and understand how books were banned and why, plus, so many are just darned good reads.

Left Bank Books is having a “Read a Banned Book Night” on Thursday, October 28th at 7 pm at their store.

Here’s the event’s description: “Join some of the American Civil Liberties Union’s best local freedom fighters and celebrate the freedom to read. We’ll be reading from banned books, talking about our friend the First Amendment, and plotting ways to keep her healthy.”
