It’s Banned Books Week! This image is taken, I think, from the Richard Oakes Multicultural Center Library. Apologies if the source is wrong.

Which banned book are you? Apparently I am Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller (1934). I guess maybe I should read it.

Banned Books Week also has its own website, and its own YouTube channel which features celebrities reading from banned material.

 If you don’t feel like reading a banned book, but would like to help historians, consider helping the Smithsonian with their crowdsourcing transcription project.
