236 people entered the Wesley Scroggins Filthy Books Prize Pack giveaway, each sharing their thoughts on censorship, each taking a stand for intellectual freedom. Wow. As you’ve all shown us, one man certainly does not speak for everyone.
The winners of the prize packs that include a copy of Speak, Slaughterhouse Five, and Twenty Boy Summer — along with some naughty dark chocolate to go with those oh-so-filthy books — are:
Katiebabs and mar g!
I’ve emailed the winners to request mailing addresses. Thanks to everyone who entered and helped promote the contest. Keep reading and keep speaking loudly against censorship!
I finished Twenty Boy Summer this morning and just blogged about it for my students at http://kaymcgriff.edublogs.org/2010/10/16/twenty-boy-summer-by-sarah-ockler/. I must thank Mr. Scroggins (eyeroll) for introducing me to this book. It took my breath away, and I can’t wait to share it with my students on Monday.
