In September of last year, the Anoka-Hennepin school district, in Minnesota, banned author Rainbow Rowell from coming to speak about her book Eleanor & Park, during Banned Books Week. The controversy caused a wave of opinions and the outrage of book lovers everywhere. It also put Eleanor & Park on the radar of many readers, including me, as I went out and bought the audio book immediately. Don't they know that if you ban a book, people everywhere want to read it? I guess not.
In honor of Banned Books Week and exercising our Freedom to read what we want, I am giving away 1 copy of Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell.
And the winner is....
