Banned Books Week 2012



I hope that all book lovers are celebrating the freedom to read what we choose this week and every week.  What disturbs me most about book censorship is the magical world of imagination so many children are denied through the misguided intentions of their parents.  My reading life was never censored, a gift I credit to my mother who loved books and encouraged me to love them, too.
