Challenged & Banned Books – Celebrate Your Right to Read!
In the 21st century, books are still “challenged” in the United States! A challenge is when someone tries to get a book removed – from a school classroom, school library, public library, college curriculum, etc. A ban is where the book is actually removed. The American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom tracks frequently challenged books.
Here are just a few of the frequently challenged and banned books which you can check out via Tutt Library:
- Of Mice and Men / John Steinbeck
- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings / Maya Angelou
- The Kite Runner / Khaled Hosseini
- To Kill a Mockingbird / Harper Lee
- The Catcher in the Rye / Salinger
- Harry Potter series / J. K. Rowling
- The Great Gatsby / Fitzgerald
- The Diary of a Girl by Anne Frank
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time / Haddon
- The Handmaid’s Tale / Atwood
