Happy Banned Book Week, Persephoneers!
I always loved this week when I was a teen because Barnes & Noble would set up a table of frequently banned books and I’d go eagerly browse them in hopes of finding something controversial to read. The ALA has a ton of cool info about Banned Books Week, including lists of the most commonly banned classics, a year-by-year breakdown of what’s been challenged/banned recently, and more. My to-read list just got bigger, and I even found a few books I need to get the kiddo (some people really don’t like gay penguins!).
What’s your favorite banned book? I’m awfully partial to the Harry Potter books, of course, and To Kill a Mockingbird and Gone With the Wind are both amazing.
