Banned Books

Shopping cart

 

In his Book Club newsletter for the Washington Post, Ron Charles covered the American Library Association's annual list of the top ten most banned and challenged books, and what trends he sees in changing lists. 

Recently both students and authors have been fighting against book bans and challenges in central Texas, Long Island, and York, PA. Students in Pennsylvania won their cause! See the list below for the top ten books and a few others making news; the School Library Journal also featured this run-down of recent headlines during Banned Books Week.
