Happy Banned Books Week! This week happens every year in late September, and we can celebrate our freedom to read by cracking open a good book.
Most of us don’t feel like the hero of the story, but here are some supposed sidekicks and other secondary characters who have journeys of their own.
As 2020 draws to a close, I’m taking a moment to review some of this year’s books. These are the most memorable.
As I talk with people about my job at the library, they sometimes ask me if I get asked any weird or frustrating questions. My favorite encounter so far involves education, so there’s no better time to tell it than now, when all the kids are going back to school.
