Cheryl Rainfield on SCARS being challenged, and the need for “dark” books – for Banned Book Week

In the video below, I talk about Scars being challenged, why I wrote Scars, and the need for “dark” books – for Banned Book Week. I read banned and challenged books, and I hope you do, too!

Here are some of my favorite quotes about banning books and censorship:

“Books and ideas are the most effective weapons against intolerance and ignorance.”
– Lyndon Baines Johnson

“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. ”
– Joseph Brodsky

“If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed.”
– Benjamin Franklin

“Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings.”
– Heinrich Heine

“Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.”
– Voltaire

Do you have a favorite quote about banned books or censorship? How about a favorite banned or challenged book? Let me know! :)
