Cory Doctorow wrote a great essay for BoingBoing about his book Little Brother, which was banned from a school because it might inspire the students to question authority. The essay begins like this:

My publisher, Tor Books, is sending 200 free copies of the paperback of my novel Little Brother to Booker T Washington High School, because it's the first school where any of my novels has been challenged by the school administration.

I hope other authors follow Doctorow's lead. (This doesn't apply to Stranger Genius Sherman Alexie, whose Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian has been challenged by so many schools that he and his publisher would go bankrupt trying to send hundreds of copies of the book to every single district where the book has inspired conflict.)
