It’s been said (and disputed) that book challenges can boost an author’s sales thanks to the folks who push back against the attacks.
Here’s an easy way to join the resistance: a banned-book subscription service.
Skylark Bookshop in Columbia, Missouri, has launched a banned-books subscription service called Getting the Banned Back Together.
It's $150 for six months or $275 for twelve months, and it gets you a mix of contemporary and classic novels that have been challenged, along with a paragraph contextualizing its history.
The Columbia Daily Tribune, which reported this story, also notes that 10 percent of proceeds will go to a program that gets banned books to families and students for free.
