Blue Ridge Books honors...Banned Books!

by Blue Ridge Books on 08/30/13

Can you guess what the books on our front display have in common??? *drum roll please* 

They are all banned books!!

Banned Books Week is an annual event in September celebrating the freedom to read.   The week is to observe and raise awareness of the value of free and open access to information.  All of the books in our front display have been banned at some point in time and in some place (library, school, etc.).  We display them to emphasize the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

Meet Tim Swink
Former attorney investigator and author, Tim Swink will read from his debut novel, Curing Time.   “Curing time” is tobacco's season of harvest, a time of transformation, when the leaf is made golden by subjection to fire and heat. In this novel set in North Carolina, tobacco farmer Hume Rankin endures his own curing time in the summer of 1959. When the rains won't come and the crops wilt in the field, he solicits the magic of an old, blind black woman.
