Why did you decide to join this book club?

I like a little bit of controversy. I also enjoy exercising my right to read any book of my choosing. I want to meet new people who share an interest in these types of books as well as other social events like going to plays, shows, movies, etc.

Do you have any banned book suggestions?

The Satanic Verses, The Jungle, In Cold Blood, and The Color Purple. A great source for finding other historically banned/challenged books is the American Library Association's website: http://www.ala.org/ala/issuesadvocacy/banned/frequentlychallenged/challengedbydecade/index.cfm

What types of books do you usually read? (Favorite books, genres, etc.)

Some of my favorite authors: Kurt Vonnegut, Charles Bukowski, David Sedaris, Robert Graves, Philip Roth, Philip K. Dick, and Ernest Hemingway (to name a few)

Introduction

I'm a graduate student looking to diversify my reading material and meet new people! I feel strongly about intellectual freedom and hope to promote many banned/challenged books through this meetup!

What Lorenzo is saying about this Meetup Group

The best book club ever!
