Local Real-Life Example of Book Banning (with a Good Ending)

Never heard of banned books before this week? Here’s a great local example of how one person can cause a book to be pulled from the shelves of a school library, therefore letting that one person dictate what they think YOU should read or not read. Thankfully, the book was returned to the shelves and made available to students, although on a more limited basis.

Interested in finding out more about Banned Books Week? How about a list of Banned Classics or the most frequently Banned Books of the 21st century? Happy reading from the Brown Library staff!

 

Thursday and Friday only, take a break at the library and try your hand at one of our Banned Books Word Searches!

Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom we have to express our opinions— even if the opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular. Banned Books Week brings attention to the challenges that have been presented to this freedom by celebrating books which have been attempted to be banned in libraries across the country. For a short history of attempts at censoring books, please see The Online Books Page Presents Banned Books Online at the University of Pennsylvania. Included in this page are links to the actual texts of these works, available for free online.

ALL WEEK

  • Visit Our Displays on the Top Floor. See examples of books that have been banned and find out the reasons behind it.
