It’s Banned Books Week from the 21st through the 27th: one of the Brash-est weeks of the year! Have you taken the Columbus State Community College’s “What Banned Book Are You?” Quiz? If you haven’t, take it here and find out!
For my quiz, I got Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, a book from 1958 that I haven’t read…but now I want to!
This was put together by librarians at Columbus State Community College – CSCC is one of seven organizations to win Banned Books Week grants from the Freedom to Read Foundation’s Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund.
For more on Banned Books Week activities sponsored by Freedom to Read Foundation grant recipients, visit http://www.ftrf.org/members/blog_view.asp?id=852091&post=197195. Other Banned Books Week events around the country can be found at www.bannedbooksweek.org/events if you’re so inclined. Mad props to Jonathan Kelley at the Freedom to Read Foundation for sending this my way!
That’s all I’ve got for this week, keeping it short and sweet while I work on my new “get a job in the library industry” series coming up. Keep voting from last week’s post on what you want to see most!
