Atticus! Atticus! It’s Banned Books Week.

Mark your calendars for the seven days between September 29 and October 6, because the ACLU is celebrating Banned Books Week, the Shark Week of censorship. At 7 p.m. October 3, author Chris Finan reads from his ponderously titled From the Palmer Raids to the Patriot Act: A History of the Fight for Free Speech in America at the Kansas City Public Library’s Central Branch, 14 West 10th Street.

Hey – come to think of it, somebody else is celebrating Banned Books Week. I know it was someone important. Damn. Who was it?

Oh, yeah.
