Dangerous Books?

What do the books featured on this Holman Library Info Board have in common?  Someone tried to stop people from exercising the right to read them.

The American Library Association sponsors Banned Books Week to remind us of past and ongoing efforts to ban the reading of certain books across the United States.  Librarians work to defend your right to read, guaranteed in the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Learn more about the current national effort to fight book banning here.
A link to a slideshow showing banned book authors speaking about and signing banned books can be seen here.
