"Banned Books," a Cartonera Book and a Recording

"Banned Books" cover

Book banning limits freedom of speech. PEN America’s Index of School Book Bans lists 2,532 instances of individual books being banned. My poem "Banned Books" talks about some of them. Here is a recording. Thanks to Howie Richie, who recorded it for his Poetry Bread show on Mimbres Community Radio, and to Linda Anderson, who taught us how to make cartonera books from recycled cardboard.
