- What books have you read that were once banned or on a challenged list?
- What does the freedom to read mean to you?
- What was the literacy rate among women in the United States in the 18th century? What was it later in the 19th century?
- How can literacy, the right to read, and the value of reading literature help shape an ethical and compassionate democracy?
