“An Idaho school board banned 23 books. So a local bookstore gave out copies for free”
–npr’s James Dawson on “All Things Considered”
NPR’s “All Things Considered” broadcast this story about how Boise’s Rediscovered Books is working to ensure access to books. The store gathered donations to provide free books to the community. They have surpassed their goal of 1,350 free books, but they are still encouraging readers to support the freedom of reading by buying challenged books, starting constructive conversations through the Read Freely Project, and understanding more about book bans and how they negatively impact individuals and communities.
