Happy Banned Book Week!

I’m normally not one to celebrate these made up “months” or “weeks” but this one sounds pretty good and in response I will finally (after five years of informal poetry study) read all of Leaves of Grass. Which I’ve been planning to do for a while but if I make it public here, then I may actually go through with it.

On the recommendation tip, I would suggest that folks pick up and read themselves some Always Running by Luis J Rodriguez.

On the local tip, the African American Museum and Library of Oakland has an exhibit on banned books going on which sounds like good fun and a chance to support a local institution.

Shout out to Author Scoop for the heads up on the Oakland event!
