Join Little Shop of Stories in partnership with the American Library Association and American Booksellers Association October 1-7 in celebrating the freedom to read. On Sunday, October 1 we will be hosting the MoveOn Banned Bookmobile tour from 1:00pm to 3:00pm outside our Little Shop!
Throughout the week, Little Shop will have a large selection of historically and currently banned/challenged books available for purchase.
