Freedom to Read Canada!

Just a little reminder that this week (in Canada) is Freedom to Read Week, a chance to celebrate information rights and creative freedoms, as well as raise awareness about the book bannings and challenges that continue to occur in libraries, schools and communities every year. As this week is also "reading week" at my university, I'll repeat an earlier comment I made during Banned Books Week last fall: what better time to pick up an issue of Sarah Ocker's Twenty Boy Summer , Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, or Jeff Smith's Bone.
