The Narwhals have been busy, as usual. In December, they grappled with Big Question 4: "Why are certain books banned?" They each picked a book from a list of commonly banned books to read and write an essay about. On Saturday, January 7, the whole group gathered with their parents to share about their books, the controversies associated with it, and their opinions about it all. Then they ate cookies and watched Fahrenheit 451 (2018).
The books discussed were: Gender Queer: A Memoir by Maia Kobabe, All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson, Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews, Crank by Ellen Hopkins, and Looking for Alaska by John Green.
