This past week, over at the Los Angeles Review of Books (where i am the YA Editor) we’ve been marking banned book week. Many books – excellent books by excellent people – have been banned. Many of these banned books are books that you and I both love. And on the front lines of banned books are YA authors. So we’ve had some great YA authors, who have had their books challenged, talk a little bit about being banned. They do so with wisdom, humor and grace.
You should go read their books now.
