Banned Books


Look at your bookshelf, or think of the books you have at home. Do you have anything by the following authors: Judy Blume, J K Rowling, Phillip Pullman, Sherman Alexie, Suzanne Collins, Laurie Halse Anderson, John Steinbeck, Mark Twain, Toni Morrison, Lois Lowry, Gary Paulson or Stephan Chbosky? If you do, you are harboring a work that has been either challenged or banned in the past 10 years. I know, some of you are blown away; how archaic, to ban books, especially ones as harmless as some of these. But it happens, more often than many of us would like to admit.
