Banned Book Week is officially underway. I have been busy presenting and advocating our intellectual freedom to my Social Sciences and English classes. Students are shocked and appalled about the book challenges and we are having lots of great discussions. Due to time restraints, I will not be reading a banned/challenged book at the moment but I hope to do sometime this year. Check out of my Forbidden Reads feature if you are curious about some of the books that I have lighted on this blog. You can also see what Banned/Challenged Books I've read in 2010, 2011, and 2012.
Here is an infographic from the American Library Association on the Top 10 2014 Book Challenges:
