Happy Friday, all!

I shared the Book Riot article highlighting the proposed burning of books in Tennessee with everyone at MHC. Sam, my super talented and creative colleague, responded with one of the best examples of erasure poetry I've ever seen. I asked permission to share it with "some library friends" and was given the green light.

The first piece is the actual erasure.
The second piece is just the words of the final poem.
The third is the original article.

Keep making good trouble, friends.
