What Are Canadian Librarians Going to Do About ‘That Scrotum Book’ During Freedom to Read Week (Feb. 25-March 3)

A postscript to yesterday’s review of The Higher Power of Lucky: Next week (Feb. 25-March 3) is Freedom to Read Week in Canada, which “encourages Canadians to reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom.” And because big books tend to appear simultaneously in the U.S. and north of the border, we may assume that the 2007 Newbery winner is there or on the way. Don’t you wonder if any Canadian librarians will dare to speak out against Susan Patron’s novel during Freedom to Read Week?
