Dear Beautiful Readers,
Yay Banned Books Week occurs this month! Let's celebrate reading!

This is my favorite topic of the year, but this time I'm especially excited! They have included a Dear Banned Author Letter Writing Campaign! Which includes postcards you can download and print out! Whee!

Also new this year: They gave away 80 banned book packages to Little Free Libraries in the US. How cool! I will post the link to the 80 that won, once they get it up... and we can see if we have any members living nearby to check it out.

Here are the book lists...

Top 10 Challenged Books by Year

Top 100 Challenged Books: 2000s

Top 100 Challenge Books: 1990s

Banned and Challenged Classics

And the Yearly Lists on this page Frequently Challenged Books, include some book challenges and bannings across the world.

A great international list on Wikipedia: List of books banned by governments

Let's write about banned books on our postcards this month! Have you read any banned books this year? What banned book will you read next? How many books have you read from the lists? What's your favorite?

How do you feel about attempts to remove books from communities?

Will you send a postcard to one of the banned book authors? Who? and what will you tell them?

The usual guidelines: You will send one postcard and you will receive one postcard. The postcard can be store-bought or hand-made and can have any kind of picture on the front. We are an International group. Newbies are so very welcome!

You can sign up for this exchange by posting below or messaging me. Please sign up by Saturday 15 Sept.

Happy Intellectual Freedom,

Lorraine (pttsbrgher) I just signed up about ten minutes ago. I would love to join in as well. How does this work? I mean, how do we get addresses? Do you assign people? I miss REAL snail mail. It seems all I get these days is junk mail and bills (even bills are now mostly emails so I don't even get that anymore).
