Banned Books Week: Sing Out

I think that sometimes the best way to combat censorship is with creation. In honor of Banned Books Week I drew a little cartoon inspired by the Banned Books Week Virtual Read Out, imagining what it would be like if some of our favorite frequently-challenged authors got together to form a band and sing out about it!


If you’ve been inspired to create something about banned books and the freedom to read, send it our way! Draw us a picture, sing a song, speak up for your rights!

    With special opening act by Huckleberry and the Finns (they’re HUGE in Scandinavia…;P)

    You need to start a webcomic with these characters.

  4. I was introduced to Huxley’s work through my High School teacher in a very rural town. It was controversial for her to teach such works as A Brave New World but these are very powerful and insightful works. Such literature is very important to society along with books like 1984 and A Clockwork Orange which are frequently banned. See my visual commentary and portrait of Huxley on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2010/07/aldous-huxley-rolls-in-his-grave.html
