LIS 6010 - Banned Book Week

Banned Book Week just ended on the 27th of September, and I celebrated by reading Louis Sachar’s The Boy Who Lost His Face. I hadn’t read this book while I was a child, but thinking back to when I was in middle school, Louis Sachar did a phenomenal job depicting the social norms and problems faced by young teenagers. 611 more words

In Cold Blood by Truman Capote (Banned Book - True Crime)

In November of 1959 a family who lived in Holcomb Kansas was brutally attacked, killed and left.  The murders of the Clutter family were senseless. The family was well-respected humble farmers and had no enemies as far as anyone knew. 511 more words
