Congratulations to commenter 5: book_pusher!!
*Giveaway now closed*
During Banned Books Week the Springfield-Green County Library system (Missouri) held a series of events. The headliner this year was a visit from Sarah Ockler whose book Twenty Boy Summer was banned from the Republic school system and later made available to students with parental permission. You can view more links and read some of my ramblings about it here. The Republic Monitor recently published an interview with Ockler, taken after a Read-Out at the Republic Branch Public Library. -link-
GIVEAWAY: A signed copy of Twenty Boy Summer :)
* Leave a message in the comments telling me about a banned or challenged book that you have read or would like to read. There are tons of books out there to choose from! (You'd be surprised at some of the books that have been banned: The Giver, Call of the Wild, The Great Gatsby, Slaughterhouse Five, Little Women, A Wrinkle in Time, Merriam-Webster Dictionary...)
* Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you (if your e-mail is attached to your profile, that works).
* Giveaway will be open until October 18. I will randomly choose the winner the next morning.
