The banned play on

It’s a well-known fact that, if you want to draw attention to something, you ban it.  Then the world will beat a path to its door.

The good literary folk of Chicago are going one further: they’re holding a Banned Book Week next month.

High on the list of exhibits is And Tango Makes Three, which is about a gay penguin, we’re told in Windy City Times, which continues:

The Chicago-based American Library Association is kicking off Banned Book Week in Chicago and throughout the U.S. with a free “Read Out” event Saturday, Sept. 27, from noon to 4 p.m., in Chicago’s Pioneer Court, 401 N. Michigan. Banned Book Week runs through Oct. 4.

Few people here in Blighty will be able to make it, but, if you’re in the vicinity of the Windy City at that time, you might like to know that you can see a complete listing of events and information here.
