It's Banned Books Week, Baby!

Banned Books BabyOur spokesmodel can't talk yet, so she is modeling for us instead. Quite a creative declaration for one so young, but her mother (Sarah Washburn) encourages her to express herself. Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read, the importance of the First Amendment, and the benefits of free and open access to information. It highlights the harms of censorship by spotlighting book bannings.
