Most Excellent Banned Books Links

Dammit! Blogger has smacked right into my company's firewall. Boo. Maybe I shouldn't have started posting at work? Eh.

Anyway. here are a few brain-stimulating links about banned and challenged books I found floating around the web.

Remember that post I made about the idiots in the Midwest that not only wanted to ban Baby Be-Bop from their local library but burn it at the stake? This is an article about that very same incident from the author's, Francesca Lia Block's, point of view.


A pretty cool site on censorship and book banning. I really love the layout. It's so poignant and minimalistic but really fits with the overall theme. Trust me. You'll get it when you see it.

First Amendment Center

The legal side of book banning and how the courts pwn those morons that attempt it.

Banned Books and Censorship

Another thorough site on book banning and censorship (obviously).
