When I was growing up as the daughter of an anti-censorship school librarian, the frequently-banned books always seemed to me to be the best books. They were daring and explored issues that were relevant to my interests. They never narrowed my worldview or damaged me; rather, they broadened my perspective and helped me to understand that my little life in my little town was not the only rule for how humanity should go about its business. A well-rounded reading list makes a well-rounded mind, and we need as many well-rounded minds as we can these days.

Thanks so much, Sara!
