Banned Books Week was September 21st through 27th. To celebrate our freedom to read, we had a display setup in the front of the media center for the event. Students loved our mug shots of students and teachers “caught” reading banned books. They wanted to know why I burned some books too! One student asked if they were so bad I had to burn them. The best questions of all came about as a result of seeing some old favorites on the banned books list. The question, “Why did they ban this book, Mrs. Borck?” led to some great discussions. “Why would anybody ban Where’s Waldo, Mrs. Borck?” Why indeed!
