I Read Banned Books!

Authors write from their hearts and souls. They have a passion to create a work that will have an emotional impact upon readers.

There are books – powerful books – whose contents have made readers uncomfortable and have infuriated others to the point of having those books banned from schools and libraries.

Our goal as educators, librarians, and parents is to provide our children with a well-rounded education. For a tolerant society, it is necessary to be knowledgeable of different cultures, ideas, and lifestyles. Books are important tools to help educate, inform, and inspire our children. When questionable ideas, language, or content appear in books, so do teachable moments. Guided discussions can provide understanding and open minds to accept new ideas and act in a positive manner. Through understanding and acceptance, our children will be able to make intelligent decisions that will affect their lives and build a better world.

Feed your mind. Read!
