Banned Books Week in review

There’s been quite a bit of coverage of Banned Books Week in the blogosphere and the mainline media. As the week comes to a close, I thought it worthwhile to post links to a few of my favorite bits this year:

Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn. Ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas.

A. Whitney Griswold, “A Little Learning,” The Atlantic Monthly (November 1952)
