I wanted to put together some wonderfully articulate piece on why banning books is small minded and hurtful. I wanted to string together brilliant words that would change the minds of individuals who believe censoring books is “the right thing to do.”
Those words are not coming swiftly, or at all, right now. So, I go to my backup plan.
I pull my copy of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee off my shelf.
I open it.
I read it.
I say to all readers, bloggers, and book lovers — read that banned book!
