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!
