Today is the first day of Banned Books Week, a US-wide event that celebrates the freedom to read. This year is the thirtieth anniversary of the event, and in honor of Banned Books week, I'll be posting a different banned book every day this week, with a short summary of the book, my thoughts on it, and why it has been challenged.
The list of books for this week is courtesy of the American Library Association, and are all from 2000-2011, a current list of frequently challenged books. I will be covering seven of them this week, selected from the website.
Hope you enjoy it!
