Banned Books for All

Photo image: 

This year, Dave Eggers (author of The Circle) and the Hawkins Project are partnering with Writer's Block Bookstore to provide each high school student with an OCPS banned book of their choice in 2024. Writer's Block Bookstore supports educating the community on why books are being banned and providing multiple resources for students to access The Circle and all banned books. This offer applies in store only and students must present a valid OCPS high school student I.D. to redeem their free banned book.
