Here is a guest post I wrote for Dr. Charles French’s Underground Library Society. In it, I described why I would choose to memorize the Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) – thereby protecting it from censorship. I hope you enjoy the post!

Underground Library Society Post

Introduction

In May of this year, Dr. Charles French extended an invitation to join his Underground Library Society (ULS). The ULS began as a project for Dr. French’s English 2 class, in which students were required to create a poster and blog about a book they would memorize. In this way, they might be able to save it from censorship.

While I have not constructed a poster, what follows is an essay about why I would memorize this book.
