Last week was Banned Books Week, where people all over this great land of ours oppose censorship and celebrate intellectual freedom and the right to read. It's really one of our favorite weeks of the year, and we kind of couldn't shut up about it: we wrote about it on our blog AND read some hilarious/terrifying stories of book-bannings both past and present.
We also took to Instagram to share "mugshots" of the HUB staff with their favorite banned books:
Speaking of Instagram, we had some amazing submissions for our two social media contests. Check out this winning review of a banned book we received on Twitter:
And maybe our favorite thing from this past week is the BBW-themed Instagram submission celebrating intellectual freedom from AH teen Delia L.:
Congratulations to both winners! Swing by the HUB any time to pick up your prizes.
All in all, it was a great Banned Books Week (except for, ya know, all those books getting banned). So keep exercising your independence, and fight the system by reading banned books. (For some reason, that really irritates the system. We're still not sure why.)
