Celebrating Banned Books Week,

September 30th-October 6th

Banned Books Week is currently celebrating its 30th anniversary! “Celebrating the freedom to read,” this annual event aims to raise awareness for the works of literature that are frequently challenged by and even banned from communities across the country.

Did you know that some of the best works of all time, and very often the ones you’ll have studied in school, have at one time or another been censored from the public? Did you know that the practice of censorship in literature still goes on today?

Yup, somewhere out there, a blinkered individual could actually be pondering at this very moment the dangers of a mind raised on an “occultist” story like Bridge to Terabithia, while someone of the same mindset argues that the bildungsroman The Perks of Being a Wallflower is “unsuited to a teenage audience.” Seriously.

And it’s not all

About justinblush

I am just the everyday self proclaimed working class hero that is in search of a little inspiration. Faced with the popular culture of the 21st century, which at times seems void of inspiration, I have chosen to set out to find the inspiration that I have been hoping would come knocking at my door but rarely has. We are reaching a breaking point in history which requires that we make a choice. We can either continue on the path of un-inspired bullshit or we can walk the path few choose and return from. This is the road of one's destiny, a sort of portal into the person you want to be, but never find the time for. The inspiration we search for, has and always will be within ourselves. So it is now that I have decided to use my life experience as a springboard to connect with people from all corners of society on a search for inspiration. It is an attempt to document our story- the human story that can go unnoticed in the hustle of life. Each of us has a story to tell and each story has many characters. It is these characters that I am interested in talking to, in an attempt to give voice to the faces in the crowd. I have began this search by talking to those who I know, or at least I think I know best. I hope to get an inside look into the lives of the faceless heroes that drive society.
