The Kids’ Right to Read Project is urging the general public to speak out against book censorship at two high schools, one in Pennsylvania and the other in California where Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak and Jeannette Wall’s The Glass Castle are being challenged. KRRP is calling on supporters of free speech to advocate for students’ right to read everywhere, especially in light of this year’s upcoming Banned Books Week. These stunning books are eminently appropriate for high school students as they enlarge students’ knowledge of the world and prepare youth to face the real challenges in life.
