September 25 to October 2 is Banned Book Week. Big Brother has been banning books for years. Read a banned book!
Absolutely... I am reading "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou in honor of its frequently banned book status!
I am confused, could someone please explain me the book ban thingy.
Schools, libraries, towns, and sometimes governments ban different books for different reasons. Some because they are violent, some for language, some because they contain ideas that people are uncomfortable with. Banning books is terrible. The Catcher in the Rye has been banned in the past, though it is a great piece of literature. Check out the link for more information.
