Banned Book becomes Best Seller!

I remember students who would carry around paperback versions of certain classic literature and read defiantly in the classroom when there was “free time” at the end of a period because they’d discovered the books had been removed from the school library. (And as you might image, I could ramble on about that for quite a few words, but it’s not the point, so I won’t. Now.) Sometimes the act of banning a book brings it attention and those among us who lean toward rebellion will read a book which before the banning did not seem that interesting.

This story of a once banned book, however, is not primarily about the power of the ban as much as it is about the power of the Book.
