Have You Ever Read a Banned Book?

Do you know if you have ever read a banned book or not? It's highly likely that you have. As I Lay Dying, Brave New World, Call of the Wild, Catch-22, Catcher in the Rye, A Farewell to Arms, Of Mice and Men, The Sun Also Rises, and Ulysses are just some of the 20th century works that have been banned or challenged somewhere in the world.

This year, the week of September 30 through October 6 celebrates Banned Books, the 30th anniversary of the American Library Association's Freedom to Read movement. Check out the Banned Books website for more information.
