So It’s Banned Book Week

So we have Banned Book Week where we look at books panned in places encourage people to read them.

I think this is great, but let me make another suggestion.

Go write a book that dives so deep, goes so far, explores things so uncomfortable (but necessary) someone wants to ban it.

As you write?  Ask yourself why your idea would be banned- is it true, is it offensive, is it honest, is it ignorant?
