We love these Banned Books Week literary mug shots created by Kate Boryeskne, especially the one she made of Alaska Young from Looking for Alaska. We got these from her website. It’s so great when literature inspires other great art—yet another reason why the freedom to read is so important!

The kid read books like he was engaged in some sort of scavenger procedure, scowling in concentration, turning pages at improbable speed while he flayed away the inessential flesh of prose and inspected the skeleton of the story, the bare facts or crucial nonsense. Dylan Ebdus didn’t read, he filleted.
