Happy Banned Books Week!

It’s Banned Books Week, so we are taking the week off at Short & Sweet to celebrate our freedom to read. Join us by reading your favorite banned book (mine is Ulysses by James Joyce) or reading a new one from this list of the top 100 banned books from 2000-2009 from ALA.

Lady Ambrosia

Seeing as Friday of this week is both Friday the 13th and the full harvest moon, it seems like an auspicious time to launch a new feature: Fairytale Focus, where I look at the representation of fairytales in popular media. This week we see a myth called Lady Ambrosia which was featured in the show The Blacklist.
