A gripping tale of modern love for a great cause, Two Boys Kissing, by David Levithan, is a heartwarming tale of two boys who intend to break the world record for kissing in honor of those who died from the AIDS epidemic. While well-written and poignant, the book has been challenged at many libraries for "condoning acts of public affection" and for its "provocative" cover. Here at tech we pride (pun intended) ourselves in being a welcoming community and also encourage you to celebrate Banned Books Week by reading a challenged book!
You can find Two Boys Kissing at FIC LEV or on the Banned Book display.
Ms. Drusin is one of the librarians at the Brooklyn Tech Library. We look forward to seeing you in the library!
