Give a damn: Banned Books Week 2008

To celebrate Banned Books Week (September 27 - October 4, 2008), Megan and I headed over to Powell's to pick up one challenged book, The Diary of Anne Frank for her to read. According to some, this book ought to be banned because it contains ideas about sexual development and can apparently bring about a realization (especially in young readers) that bad things can happen to good people. Because of this they argue, Anne's dairy is just sexually explicit and a "real downer" and therefore should be banned from school libraries.
