Join the BANNEDwagon - Read a Book!!!!
September 14, 2010
Sept 25th – Oct 2nd is Banned Book Week.
I bet you’re thinking that you have never read a banned or challenged book before. My guess is, if you have read anything by these authors, you have:
Cecily Von Ziegesar, Sarah Dessen, J.K. Rowlings, Judy Blume, Maya Angelou, Eoin Colfer, Chris Crutcher, Lois Lowry, Walter Dean Myers, Lauren Myracle, Mark Twain, John Steinbeck, Harper Lee, Ellen Hopkins, Anne Frank, Shel Silverstein.
They have all had at least one of their books challenged by school libraries, parents, or educators for numerous reasons, such as sexual content, violence, racism, the occult, or adult themes. Those authors listed above are just the tip of the iceberg of recognizable books and authors that have been challenged.
