See ‘Trading Cards’ for Clockwork Orange, Lord of the Flies, and Other Banned Books


In honor of Banned Books Week (which ends on Saturday), the Lawrence Public Library in Kansas solicited submissions from artists of all ages to create "trading cards" for books once outlawed. It's not only a cool art project but also a reminder that books can be both important and awesome. You have fewer than 48 hours to get to your nearest library or bookstore to celebrate what you may not have realized is a very important holiday.
