Congratulations to Maddie Hawkins and Miranda Durner for their winning entries in our Banned and Shredded book contest! Oh, and in case you were wondering, the shredded book was Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. How many of you guessed right?
This contest was interesting on so many levels. Many of you were shocked that we would do something like shred a book. We talked about censorship and the destruction of ideas in our society. Another side topic was the impact of branding and marketing in the literary world. Several of you could guess the book just based on the font and color from the cover. This contest really got us thinking about books, what they mean to us, and the role they play in our world.
Thank you to all who participated and may the odds be ever in your favor!
