The Legal Implications of Banned Books Week
by George H. Pike
The American Library Association's (ALA) annual Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read by drawing attention to attempts to censor reading materials in public, school, and academic libraries. The ALA's Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF), the event's organizer, contributes to the week its list of the 10 most frequently challenged books of the year. ... These objections have given rise to a complex and nuanced legal structure governing censorship and the banning of books and other reading materials. Central to this legal structure is the First Amendment's provision protecting the freedom of speech.

The Carousel Carver The Carousel Carver
by Perdita Buchan

This evocative historical novel tells the story of Giacinto, who emigrates from Italy in 1912 and becomes a carousel carver during the golden age of the craft in America, and Rosa, the eight-year-old orphan girl thrust into his care.

The Carousel Carver vividly recreates the world of the immigrant carvers—from the inspiration found in fiery horses, big cats, and children's laughter to the clatter, sawdust, and politics of Philadelphia's bustling multicultural workshops. This is an engaging and insightful tale of tolerance, second chances, and what it means for those once adrift to call America home.
