This week, Kyrie and Cori discuss the Banned Books they selected, as well as some information on what causes a book to be banned, example of other banned books, and a brief history of banned books!
During their discussion, Kyrie and Cori drink Numi Earl Grey tea.
Kyrie picked The Well of Loneliness by Radclyffe Hall, which seems to be a semi-autobiographical telling of Hall’s life and experience. It’s a hefty read, with very small font, and takes a lot of time and energy to get into. Victorian style writing is very different than what we’ve grown accustomed to.
Cori picked Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, which is a classic sci fi story about banned books. It seemed pretty fitting given the genre, and it was a classic she has been wanting to read for a while. It takes you to a futuristic world where instead of putting out fires, firemen set fires when they find people with books, which are no longer allowed.
