Oct. 2, 2012 — Every year the American Library Association (ALA) sponsors “Banned Books Week.” This year it falls from Sept. 30-Oct. 1.
In honor of celebrating the right to choose what to read, I like to spend some time each fall finding out which of my most loved books are on the banned list.
What I’ve found is the question should be not which books have been banned, but which ones haven’t been.
Oct. 2, 2012 — Cindie called this “the concert of a lifetime” back in May when she heard her son Tyson (of KSUE fame) and his roommate Pat (the former Times staffer) had bought us tickets to see last week’s Crosby, Stills and Nash (CSN) in Reno to celebrate Mother’s Day and my birthday.
Although the concert was months away, I scribbled CSN on my calendar at work. I’ve always enjoyed the superstar band’s music, but they don’t mean as much to me as they do to Cindie.
