I just learned that they banned Invisible Man recently.

This book was a literary must-have, especially for African Americans. I wonder if this will come up in discussion.

This event should make for an interesting discussion!! I’ll have to write a post about it on my book blog. :-)

I don’t have a blog, but I’m pretty sure that most of Meltzer’s comic work belongs on the banned books list.

Yes. No one deserves to have footprints on their brain or to be ‘Dr. Lighted’ by a conspiracy nut.
