Ok, for those of you who know me as "Doris the fitness lady," there is also "Doris the reading teacher" who is not talking about fitness today. Today I thought I'd bring up Banned Book Week.
I am a firm believer in The Freedom to Read. Having sat on a few challenged book review committees, I know the books that some people want banned have meant the world to others. While I do feel that all people should be able to pick and choose what they read, or what your children read, I don't feel that anyone should make that choice for me.
I could write all day about ways to celebrate Banned Book Week, I've used my education blog to highlight certain books, and ask people to blog/vlog about their favorite banned book. You can check out my blog on The Leaky Cauldron if you are interested in helping us support The Right to Read.
