What not to do during Banned Books Week: ban seven books. After a tense board-meeting, a high school in Highland Park, Texas, has demanded its students to stop reading The Art of Racing in the Rain; The Working Poor: Invisible in America; Siddhartha; The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian; An Abundance of Katherines; The Glass Castle: A Memoir; and Song of Solomon. “Parents and grandparents brought books flagged with sticky notes.
