Yes, sad but true. Every year books are “challenged”, meaning someone attempts to ban them, or sometimes actually does. Check out this map that Google has compiled of where across the country this has happened. Maybe they have not read our Bill of Rights? But the American Library Association is fighting back by celebrating their “Banned Books Week” every year. Please join the fight against censorship this year during Banned Books week from September 26−October 3, 2009 by checking out a banned book at the library, or educate others about attempted censorship. We readers can decide for ourselves what we can read! And PS it is nobody’s business.
