Save the Books

What I tell kids, don't walk, to the nearest nonschool library or to the local bookstore and get whatever it was that they banned. Read whatever they're trying to keep out of your eyes and your brain, because that's exactly what you need to know.
~Stephen King

My sympathies lie with teachers, students, librarians, parents, and other Floridians who are dealing with DeSantis. For Art Thursday, banned and burned books:

World War II Poster

Burning of Books
Luyken, Jan (1649-1712)

Chris Riddell on Libraries

Roberta Stevens

Twin Hickory Public Library, Glen Allen, VA

I'm with the Banned shirts (Etsy)

Great quotation by Stephen King...totally agree. Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 should be required reading on the subject. And I love the "Ban Bigots Not Books" t-shirt. :-)

Sigh. Thank you for waving a flag for freedom of thought, Tabatha. (My home state gets weirder - not in a good way - by the week.)
