The sight of a politician on a tour, during summer (aka fair season), isn't unusual at all.
But we're pleased to see the purpose of Vermont's lieutenant governor's travels: supporting the freedom to read.
The Associated Press dropped in on a recent stop for David Zuckerman, who has been reading and discussing frequently challenged books at libraries and bookstores around Vermont.
Most recently, that title was And Tango Makes Three — one of the most frequently challenged books in the past decade — by Peter Parnell and Justin Richardson.
And joining Zuckerman at that stop were three Vermont authors who also read from controversial books ... including the classic Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, a frequent ban target in the early 1960s.
