Censorship of Slaughterhouse Five Update!

Some of you may be aware of my recent censorship rant inspired by a book banning at a high school in Missouri. Two books including Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse Five and Ockler's Twenty Boy Summer were banned.

Well I'm excited to hear about a recent announcement from the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Museum. They are giving away FREE copies of Slaterhouse Five to students who were affected by the book banning.

Check it out!

I love seeing people standing up to censorship. As long as people reach out to the people affected by book bannings, and stand in solidarity with them, censors will fight a losing battle.

  1. It doesn't surprise me that books are censored anywhere, anymore, but I'm really glad that the museum is doing this!
