This year, a special YouTube channel
is being created so that anyone with a video camera, from any location, can upload themselves reading an excerpt from their favorite banned book and have it be slapped together in one giant F-U to the book banners. While I’m not a vlogger
(I’ve only done it once), you may just see my lovely mug right here on this site reading from a banned book. I mean, how can I pass something like this up?
So expect that, along with other book banning mockery in the month of September. I’ll be posting the sign-up post for Ban This! towards the end of August. I’m not sure of Steph Su will be doing the Banned Books Reading Challenge again this year but if she doesn’t, I hope someone will. As book lovers, we need to stick it to the banners every chance we get!
