Happy Friday friends! We hope you've had a great week celebrating Banned Books.
For today's #FridayReads Talia and Anne have chosen their favorite banned books:
Talia is glad she's not in the crazy house after re-reading
RUNNING WITH SCISSORS by Augusten Burroughs
Burrough's story of growing up under the most extraordinary circumstances is "hilarious, freaky-deaky, berserk, controlled, transcendent, touching, affectionate, vengeful, all-embracing.... It makes a good run at blowing every other [memoir] out of the water." (The Washington Post)
Anne is re-living high school English after re-reading
THE SCARLET LETTER by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Long before desire was all Shades of Grey it was Scarlet Red. Nathaniel Hawthorne's greatest work tells the story of Hester Prynne's adulterous affair and the struggle to create a new life with dignity and repentance in Puritanical times.
Who would want to censor this adorable fellow?! Not us. Enjoy your weekend!
Banned Books Week (Sept. 22-28) is upon us once again librarian friends!
This is the week to read and re-read all your favorite banned and challenged books.
If you're feeling inspired to read aloud, we highly recommend that you submit a banned book reading video on the Virtual Read-Out page on YouTube. And don't forget to join the conversation on Twitter today (Monday) 9/23 from 10 am - Noon and Wednesday 9/25 from Noon - 2 pm using the hashtag #BannedBooksWeek2013.
Let's keep fighting for our FREADOM!
We're very excited to see four of our fine titles on Booklist's 2012 Editors’ Choice list of the best Adult books for a Young Adult audience.
That Adult-to-Teen crossover appeal makes these titles special for us and accessible to all of your patrons.
Here are the Macmillan titles:
GIRLCHILD by Tupelo Hassman
LITTLE STAR by John Ajvide Lindqvist
THIS IS HOW: Proven to Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More, for Young and Old Alike by Augusten Burroughs
RAIDERS!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made by Alan Eisenstock and others
The full list has not been posted online, yet. When I see it, I will update this post. [...]
This is the time of year that Talia and I are of the busier of the busy bees (maybe that's why we're buzzing so much lately??) and we end up missing some of the totally rad week-to-week Macmillan excitement.
So when Talia paused for 1/23 of a second to sip her coffee this morning and glanced at The New York Times Book Review Best Sellers list for May 27, she did a double-take and then called me in to talk about how many of our awesome books are on the list.
We high-fived about it.

"The theme of human struggle against the pulls of solipsism and narcissism illuminates every page of the novelist’s essays."
OBLIVION by Héctor Abad. Translated by Anne McLean and Rosalind Harvey.
"Abad’s highly personal coming-of-age story is also a sociopolitical portrait of Colombia."
