The Banned Week Trailer is cool...

Like the touches of it with the music.

I loved Markus Zusak's comments on books and novel reading creating empathy. I commented. I remember mentioning that before to some people, I hadn't heard anyone else say that before.

I was especially interested in Laurie Halse Anderson's thoughts as I know her book, Speak, has been banned. It's an excellent book I reviewed earlier this year. Her points are great on allowing teenagers to express their pain and using literary as a safe vehicle. "Censoring books is the opposite of protection."

She also says, "Censorship is the child of fear and the father of ignorance."
