BANNED BOOKS WEEK: Comic Book Edition

Captain Underpants tops the banned comics list, and coming in at number 10 is Bone, my oldest grand daughter’s favorite series. Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi’s brilliant coming of age novel from Iran makes the cut. A couple years ago Rahm Emmanuel’s school beauracrats banned Persepolis from Chicago Public Schools. A phone call to the private school Rahm’s kids attend revealed that there are 9 copies in the library there, 2 in the original French. All seventh graders read the book—they get real art and real literature while CPS kids are sentenced to another period of drill and kill.
