Banned Books Week starts tomorrow! Here to kick it off is Rediscovered Books co-owner & bookseller Bruce DeLaney reads from “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” by J.K. Rowling.
The series was the number one banned book in the last decade. Many have argued that the themes of witchcraft and sorcery are anti-Christian, detrimental to children, and “…are door-openers to topics that desensitize children to very real evils in the world.”
Everyone should have the right to read freely and without censorship.
