I’ve been reading Laurie Halse Anderson’s LiveJournal every day this month because she’s holding a writing challenge for the month of August. In today’s post she brought up the Humble TLF (Teen Lit Fest) censorship issue. She included links to the blogs of the authors that are no longer attending TLF as way to protest censorship so we can read their reasons why. Laurie then went on to explain why she thinks authors should attend TLF. I want you to read her post so you have the opportunity to see this stand against censorship from a couple different perspectives. We will without a doubt be discussing this in Y.A. Lit this school year!
Let me know what you think after you read her post.
