It’s National Banned Book, that time of year when freedom of speech and the written word are celebrated. As a teacher I have  dealt with my own battles to keep certain books on the classroom shelves and I may post more on that later.

Right now I am having fun watching many of the videos posted by famous authors and celebs over on youtube on a channel dedicated to reading aloud portions of their favorited banned books.

Here’s a  video of Whoopi Goldberg reading  a poem by Shel Silverstein, but you can also check out videos by  popular authors like Judy Blume. Sara Zarr. and many others.
