Blogger defends Banned Books Week

Monday, September 26, 2011

Elaine Magliaro, a former school librarian and guest blogger on Jonathan Turley’s law blog, recently defended Banned Books Week against claims that it’s “propaganda.”

Magliaro’s post came in response to criticism from the National Review Online’s Jonah Goldberg.

As part of her rebuttal, Magliaro excerpts a commentary by the First Amendment Center’s Gordon Belt on Banned Books Week.
