Hell Hath No Fury Like the Book Community Scorned

It takes a lot to make me angry, but if you want to see me pissed just ban a book. Hearing about people who try to silence important issues and determine what other people can read makes me want to go on a rampage.

This morning I got on Twitter and saw a tweet from Laurie Halse Anderon about this article. The author, Wesley Scroggins, declares that her book Speak should be classified as soft pornography because it contains rape scenes. I don’t know what kind of sick, ignorant bastard this guy is if he thinks that the rape of a teenage girl is pornographic. If that excites you, I hope you’re not the one making decisions about our educational system. Speak is a book about a girl named Melinda who is raped the summer before 9th grade. She doesn’t tell anyone about what happens; she is silent. Banning Speak only silences more readers who lose the opportunity to see that they are not alone. Preventing people from reading about rape does not stop it from happening.

There has been an outpouring of rage on Twitter and book/author blogs. I’m glad that authors are angry and supporting Laurie Halse Anderson. It could be their books next. And I’m glad that book bloggers are showing their support because readers should be insulted when they are told that they are not smart enough to choose books for themselves or their own children.

Please read Laurie Halse Andseron’s blog post about this issue to learn more about what you can do to fight censorship. Other great posts include those by A.S. King, Cheryl Rainfield, and April of Good Books and Good Wine. I will try to keep an updated list here as I come across more. I hope that you will speak up, and speak loudly. Whether on Twitter, Facebook, your blog, or in a letter to newspapers or school officials, let your voice be heard. Banned books week is coming up and loads of people will be talking about censorship, but books are banned all year round. Make sure you are out there telling your friends and family and community that you are opposed to the censorship of ideas. Thinking can be dangerous, but ignorance is worse.

  • I am so hurt to hear that this is still going on. My dad, a librarian, many times had to read books to make certain that they could be put in the Children’s Section. Fear of the community wrath was rampant. This was 40 years ago and I had truly hoped that the community was more educated now than they were then. I used to read books before they went on the shelf to give him “my opinion.” I was so fortunate that no person or community was censoring my ability to read a book that I desired. SO, please speak out against this subject as loudly as you would speak out against rape. Both are horribly hurtful to the community.

  • I read the tweets this afternoon and immediately posted on my blog about this issue. I’m outraged that anyone would consider this book pornographic or try to stop it from being read by teenagers. Sometimes books are the only way a young person can find the refuge and understanding they need when they have endured a crisis.

    6 Christine said this (September 19, 2010 at 5:16 PM)

  • Thank you for including me on your list among such formidable company. Going back over my own post now, I realize I was so blind with anger I didn’t make a whole lot of sense. I’m just glad there are so many others who are making the case more reasonable.

    Thank you for this list. Thank you to everyone who is fighting the good fight for this good book.

    I’m going to trackback from my site so people can get the full depth and breadth of this issue from the book community.

  • Thank you for inclusing me on your list of blog posts about this subject.

    IMO Speak is such an important book. It’s allowed dialogue to open for so many people about such an important topic. Trying to ban SPEAK does nothing to help the voices who’ve been able to speak because of it.

  • Thank you so much for linking my post. I’m so glad to see that the book community is rallying around Laurie as well as one another. Censorship in general angers me, but the fact that this particular book is being challenged especially hit home for me. Thanks again.

    31 jen said this (September 19, 2010 at 9:44 PM)

  • Censorship is disgusting and wrong by its nature. This example is sickening and shows a lack of understanding, a lack of compassion, a lack of empathy, a lack of humanity, and more concern for what others might think than what is truly right or wrong.
    People should read Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 again. It was about book burning and censorship. This quote reminds me of what it was all about and seems to fit this sad event.
    “With school turning out more runners, jumpers, racers, tinkerers, grabbers, snatchers, fliers, and swimmers instead of examiners, critics, knowers, and imaginative creators, the word `intellectual,’ of course, became the swear word it deserved to be. You always dread the unfamiliar.”

    Ray Bradbury commented on the censorship of his own book by saying,
    “There is more than one way to burn a book.
    And the world is full of people running about with lit matches.”
    This appears to be as true today as it was then!

  • Wonderful post. Thank you for speaking up and sharing your thoughts, and also for sharing so a fantastic and comprehensive list of others who are doing the same. One thing I love about the blogging community is our passion for books, our passion for controversial issues that involve books, our willingness to stand up for what’s right and what we believe in, and how much we support not only authors but also each other. The blogging community is truly awesome, and am honored to be a part of it.

    I did post about this on my blog but didn’t manage to write anything as elequent as you and other bloggers. I am hosting a giveaway for Speak though http://bookreviewsbysarah.blogspot.com/2010/09/giveaway-speak-laurie-halse-anderson.html

I certainly don’t possess the same courage as many of you, but I do truly admire it.

    Please keep the links coming. I will continue to update this list as long as they are sent or I come across them on Twitter or in my blog reader.

  • I’ve been following this debate from the other side of the pond and was horrified by the ignorance of this Scoggins bloke. School is for educating young people, not for keeping them in the dark because one or two people would like to think that they can make the world into a big fluffy pink marshmallow by pretending it is one. And it made me furious that Scroggins was more upset about the idea of kids reading about upsetting issues than experiencing them first hand. I’ve written a blog review of “Speak” (not having read the other two) and argument against censorship at http://www.katiesbookblog.blogspot.com

    50 Katie said this (September 22, 2010 at 5:27 PM)

    There’s not much book banning in my country but I did feel like speaking LOUDLY about it still. This provoces me immensly. I blogged about this to show my support to the authors and readers in countries where books are banned.

    I think Scroggins should concentrate his energies on banning something truly pornographic–like PopcORN.

  • I wholly agree that Speak is a novel that deserves to be heard, praised, and celebrated-not banned. It confounds me to think that an educated man could be so blind to the true message that Laurie Halse Anderson so beautifully weaved into her novel.
