Based on true events, The Drowning of Stephan Jones tells the harrowing story of one small town’s brush with homophobia Sensitive Carla Wayland certainly doesn’t know anyone who is gay, not in her small hometown of Rachetville, Arkansas. While everyone says homosexuality is a sin, Carla doesn’t know what to think. But her mother, the town librarian, always stands up for what she knows is right, even when it isn’t popular, and Carla loves her for that. Then Frank Montgomery and Stephan Jones, a gay couple, move into town. Tempers flare, and the town’s friendly residents—led by the Baptist preacher, Reverend Roland Wheelwright—soon show their true colors. Carla is horrified, but even Andy Harris, her longtime crush and now boyfriend, seems to agree that homosexuality is an abomination, to be wiped out. When Andy and his friends take their cause a little too far, will Carla be able to defy the majority and speak up for justice? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Bette Greene including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

Banned Books Week is celebrated the last full week in September and strives to make the public aware of books that have been banned or challenged in schools and public libraries, as well as in bookstores and other venues. Founded in 1982, the event is sponsored by the American Library Association, American Booksellers Association, American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, American Society of Journalists and Authors, and the Association of American Publishers. The activities that champion the freedom to read during Banned Books Week include displays of banned or challenged books and read-outs in communities across the nation. In 2012, the American Library Association marked the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week by asking libraries in every state to participate in a virtual read-out. Recordings of these read-outs and of writers talking about challenges to their books are posted on a Banned Books Week Channel on YouTube. Students should understand that they do have the freedom to read, and they should use this week to become aware of attempts to abridge their rights.
