Books unite us. Sharing stories important to us means sharing a part of ourselves. Books reach across boundaries and build connections between readers. Censorship, on the other hand, divides us and creates barriers.

As before, we'll be displaying "mystery" books wrapped in plain paper and imprisoned in a cage--all of them have been banned at one point or another in our country. There will be clues posted outside the cage and if you can guess the title, you free the book and get to take it home.
