Year one was The Diary of Anne Frank.
Year two was Tom Sawyer.
On the other side of the river they are no longer bound and free to roam the land with the lettering and stitching showing the freedom. My thoughts on banned and/or challenged books. Banning books is a slippery slope. There are many books that are published and read that I would not read or encourage anyone else to read. However, I know there are some stories that should be told, even if there was only one person to read it. And there are books that I would not want to have removed from the shelves. I am not the judge of what should be or shouldn’t be available and I don’t want anyone else choosing for me. If I have the right to ban a book I don’t agree with, that will give someone else the right to ban a book I want to read.
My local library is going to post my 3 quilts over the next month:
My current read, “White Fang,” by Jack London. I am sure it is a book that should have been part of my high school years, but wasn’t.
Check out more Banned Book quilts over on Flikr.
So what are you reading this week?
