All kinds of banned books at OUR library



Here's our logo, courtesy Jamie Smith. It'll have a red book, rather than green. The t-shirts we've ordered for this batch are simply in black and white, though. Later we'll do another batch (more shirts, aprons, mugs, nightshirts). We'll see how this first big bunch go.

Banned books in the Ester library:

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
the Harry Potter series
Catcher in the Rye
Justine
Juliette
Howl
Das Kapital
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
Goosebumps
A Wrinkle in Time
Go Ask Alice
The Color Purple
The Handmaid's Tale
Flowers for Algernon
A Light in the Attic
Ordinary People
Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret
The House of Spirits
Slaughterhouse Five
Lord of the Flies
To Kill a Mockingbird
Native Son
The Dead Zone

I'm sure there's lots of other books that offend people, plus a bunch that please people, too. Ideas will do that.

Cool logo - where can we get a t-shirt?

I love it! We're really looking forward to the concert. And checking out a few offensive books. ;)

T-shirts will be available at the Tim Easton concert at the Malemute on August 12, and then afterwards at the Ester Republic and at In the Heart of Ester (or directly from the library, JTEL, PO Box 24, Ester AK 99725)

Maybe my memory ain't so good anymore but I'd swear over half those books were required reading when I was in school! The other half hadn't been printed yet.
Take care,
Jeff
