Behind Banned Books Box
Ariel Hakim started Banned Books Box in late 2021 after learning about drag queen story times being canceled, the massive number of books being kept from inmates in U.S. prisons, and the growing trend to remove books from school shelves without regard for the school district's established policies for challenging them.
Some of her past roles have been: library reference associate, newspaper reporter, men's homeless shelter case manager, church secretary, and movie theatre janitor. She holds an MFA in nonfiction creative writing and lives in Northeast Ohio with her husband and three children.
