BBW18PosterThis year I’ll be doing a mix of things. There will be a few reviews, a few reflections on articles I’ve come across in the past year, and I’m hoping to participate in the “Dear Banned Author” program.

Will you join me?

All week long I’ll be posting about Banned Books — and every post will include a link to a linky-list where you can share links to your own Banned Book blog posts!

    Best wishes, Pete.
