Bloggers Speak Out & a Filthy Books Giveaway

Bloggers Speak Out is a movement sparked by the recent article, "Filthy Books Demeaning to Republic Educationby Dr. Wesley Scroggins that was published in the Springfield, MO News-Leader on September 18th. In this article, Scroggins vehemently advocates the censorship of books in schools, and specifically requests that the following books be removed from the Republic school system: Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson, Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, and Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. To show our support of these authors and to fight against book banning and censorship, we have decided to take action and speak out.
 
This event is being run from September 21st-October 3rd. It is being organized by Natalie of Mindful Musings and if you would like to participate then head over to her blog and either send her an email or leave her a comment.
