Real Writers

I just came across a link for this letter Kurt Vonnegut wrote to a chair of a school board in North Dakota who decided to burn copies of Vonnegut’s work because it was deemed inappropriate for children. Vonnegut’s response is powerful both in its condemnation of the school boards methods and in his defense of the freedom of ideas. It’s worth a read.

This peice by Kurt Vonnegut is required reading for my students in intro to college composition.  Good advice all round.
