Name the Banned Book Contest: Question 7
The Birmingham Public Library is conducting a contest to celebrate Banned Books Week, September 30-October 6. Check the BPL blog every day during Banned Books Week and guess the passage from a book that was banned in America. If you guess correctly, your name will go in a drawing for prizes and the winners will be announced on the blog Monday, October 8. Prizes include library totes, gift certificates to the Friends Bookstore, a Friends gift membership, and a book bag or T-shirt of your choice from the Friends Bookstore. Good luck! (BPL staff not eligible.)
Question 7: What horror novel is this passage from?
“Wendy? Darling? Light of my life. I'm not gonna hurt ya. I'm just going to bash your brains in."
Post your answer in the comments section. Comments will not appear online until the next morning when the answer is revealed.
Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich goes undercover as a minimum wage earner to show how difficult it is for the working poor in America. She stops off in a number of cities, checks in at the cheapest lodgings, and gets work as a waitress, house cleaner, maid, home health aide, and Wal-Mart clerk.
Nickled and Dimed was removed from New Hampshire's Bedford School District's required Personal Finance course after two parents complained about the profanity, anti-Christian references, and negative portrayal of capitalism.
