Banned Books Today

When a librarian talks to people about Banned Book Week, they get many people who scoff at the notion that book banning and challenges still happen today. Between the beginning of 2012 and September 2013, there have been almost 50 challenges and some out right banning of books in the United States alone.

The ALA has put together a list of the books challenged during 2012-2013. Let’s take a look at a few.
