don't ban steak!

"You're given the form, but you have to write the sonnet yourself. What you say is completely up to you" --Madeline Le'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time has been challenged/banned  for a variety of reasons including: religious content, challenging religious beliefs, and witchcraft. Happy 5th day of Banned Books Week 2012:

Here are some inspiring quotes by some famous folks:

“Something will be offensive to someone in every book, so you've got to fight it.”--Judy Blume

“If there's one American belief I hold above all others, it's that those who would set themselves up in judgment on matters of what is "right" and what is "best" should be given no rest; that they should have to defend their behavior most stringently.” Stephen King

"There is no such thing as a moral book or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. That is all." --Oscar Wilde

"Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads." --George Bernard Shaw

"Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it."  --Unknown
