  1. Long time ago (1994) I organized a banned-books reading in response to a local attempt to get two kids’ books about gay and lesbian families banned from one of the school libraries. It was a stunning success. About 20 readers participated, each reading a passage from the banned book of their choice. A Methodist minister read the David and Jonathan story from the Bible. 🙂

    At the time I was very aware of all the ways that books can be suppressed, challenged, marginalized, and banned, but the length and breadth of the American Library Association’s list for 1994 astonished me, and I think everyone else who participated.

    Thanks for the reminder! Now I’m thinking of organizing something similar for Banned Books Week this September.
