Happy Banned Books Week!

I set up a table at work to do a little light educating about banned books. It included a few boxes of cookies, a few Iowa-based banned/challenged book facts, and a list of the banned/challenged "Best 100" classics.

It was a hit! People really enjoyed grabbing their own list and realizing that they've read many of them. "I never knew I was so racy!" said a co-worker. Passers-by were also interested to find out that the last ALA-noted challenged book in Iowa was as recent as 2011. I overheard multiple people asking "I wonder what book that was." I know, it's not big. I know I'm not reaching the entire corporation. But it's something.
