This week, the American Library Association and others invite you to celebrate books that are worthwhile enough to offend the sensibility of bad parents and culture-warring school boards. It’s Banned Book Week, everyone; go out right now and buy copies of Slaughterhouse-Five, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret., The Catcher in the Rye, and so on, for all your cousins, nieces, nephews, neighbor children, etc.

2008’s Most Challenged Book in America, for the third year running, was And Tango Makes Three, a picture book about gay penguins raising a baby penguin together.
