I haven't started it yet, so this isn't a recommendation. I just figured with our group's theme and all, it may be of some interest.
I hope you'll let us know when you post your review!
I like the writing style so far. But the reason I'm posting is that I've developed a nerd-crush on Gretchen Knief, the Kern County librarian who's standing up for The Grapes of Wrath.
While I wouldn't go so far as to say I have a nerd-crush on Gretchen Knief (at least not yet anyway), I do admire her tenacity and her love of her library.
This is the first time I've jumped in on "Talk". Hope you all don't mind. Julie
Boy, was I wrong! There is so much more. All the historical background, the people, the politics behind Grapes of Wrath and its banning. I am not saying this book is perfect (I'm talking about Obscene in the Extreme) - I would've liked to see more details about Gretchen Knief, the librarian and more about the libraries in that time. However, there is much information that is new to me that I am very happy I've read it.
Thanks again guys for sending me this book!
