Abstract

Ashland bookstore, Shakespeare Books & Antiques, is being boycotted by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival because of an offensive book in a Banned Books window display. The author asked for opinions on the situation from residents and tourists on the street. Some respondents emphasized the need to understand reasons for banning books and to avoid whitewashing history.
