How to submit

For Videos:

Videos must contain reading of a passage of one of the books on the list.  You can read it, sign it, sing it, draw it, or otherwise showcase a passage in one of these books.  Videos should not be more than five minutes long and we prefer Youtube uploads.  However, you can email them to Baninnghistory@gmaildotcom and we will convert it to Youtube for you.

Please make sure when uploading to Youtube that you include the hashtag #banninghistory so we have all the videos together in one place.

If uploading to Youtube email us that link or embed code/   Please include the title of your submission, your name and the date submitted.

Do not do anything that violates copyright laws and make sure you quote the title of the book, author and page number from where the passage you are reading is from.

If it's a poem, make sure you state the name of the poem.

Please make sure you're not cussing or trashing the state, etc.  ONLY read the passage.  If the passage has cussing then so be it.

Please make a short statement on your video of why this book is important to you and why you think it is wrong for Arizona to pull it from the schools.

For Photos:

We accept photos of you or your loved ones reading one of these or all these books.  We want to see them on your shelves, in your hands, on your tables, etc.  Please make sure the image is high-res and that it is YOUR image, not a copyrighted one.  In  your email, please state that it is your image and that you own the copyright to it.

Also include your name, date, and a quote you'd like us to include with the photo about why this book is important to you.

For Posts:

If you would like to write a post about the situation in Arizona, we will post it for you.  Blog posts should be no more than 500 words and should include your name, link to your blog or website if you have one and should be your own original work, though if it has been previously posted on YOUR blog, we will post it with a link back to the original article.  Please include that.

Check spelling and grammar, because there are only three of us and we're buried in posting, contacting authors and converting video.

If you are an author of one of these books, we want to hear from you.  We want you to read from your favorites too!  Let us know your thoughts.

Every single submission will be posted.
