But before we get to the discussion, I wanted to publicly praise the BPL’s Banned Books Week Committee, This year, they organized a “Get Caught Reading” interactive and multi-media experience to go along with our traditional displays of banned and challenged items.
Scroll down to see some of the BPL staffers’ mug shots as they are caught reading banned books! Over the course of the week, more staff and patrons will be encouraged to pose with a book. We will be uploading them to our Flickr for all to see us proudly Celebrating Our Freedom to Read!
After the photos, it will be your turn to get involved...
We are quite the subversive bunch.

But what about the discussion? As promised I have something different in store for you this year. In a nod to the popularity of online quizzes, the Columbus State Library created a quiz which asks, Which Banned Book are You?”
So, for today’s Monday Discussion, take the quiz and leave your answer in the comments.
I got Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller.
