Banned Books Week Observes its 34th Year

Sep 26, 2016

  Whether the motivation is political or religious, or just protective parenting, efforts to see certain books suppressed seem as persistent as the seasons. So Banned Books week is here again to remind us of that. 

The American Library Association has released the video below which lists the top ten banned books of the past year. 

  If you were surprised to see the Bible included in that list, James LaRue of the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom, says the reasons behind that are a mix of religion with politics.
