This April, my public library system is hosting its annual Keep Toronto Reading Festival. They pick a book every year and ask the people to read, debate, and gather to discuss the ideas it expresses.
Fahrenheit 451 by the legendary Ray Bradbury is the one being celebrated all over Toronto for KTR. And at the Lillian Smith library branch, they have a display dedicated to the late author, his famous work, and his creativity.
The following is a pictorial essay of the exhibit, with a list of banned books interspersed through out. All to honour the great writer and his works.
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling.
The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier.
And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson/Peter Parnell.
