Artist: Sam Six
Banned/Challenged Book: Charlotte’s Web
Reason for Banning: Banned because talking animals are blasphemous and unnatural.
Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: I have chosen Charlotte’s Web as inspiration for my drawing. I
chose this book because I have very clear childhood memories of my mother reading the book out loud to me. I tried my best to portray many elements of the story in my drawing and also incorporate themes from banned book week. I’m glad for the opportunity to be able to place my drawing in the contest and hope that it helps the Lawrence Public Library in anyway possible.
