Arlington High School students have created some beautiful banned book art to add to the display here at the library. This photo doesn’t do them justice – you have to come see for yourself! So far there is one piece of art each for I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and 1984 by George Orwell.
Remember, everyone is welcome to contribute to the Banned Books Week display by re-imagining a cover design for a book that has been banned or challenged. We have some blank index cards on the display table, just waiting for your ideas to color them in! Read more about the Banned Book Trading Card project here.
Many of you have already celebrated your freedom to read by filling up the Books Change Lives jar. It’s not too late to add the name of an author or book that meant a lot to you – the display will be up through the end of this month.
Thanks again to the AHS students who contributed their art to this display!
