Banned Books

This interesting, The American Library Association’s Most Frequently Challenged Books list – these are the books that are banned in many schools and libraries. I look at this list and I see books that I would probably vote to ban, and then I see others that I read in school and wonder why they are […]

Currently he has a piece called “Lord, Have Mercy” which is featured on All Songs Considered’s Open MIC. When I followed […]
