Banned Books

Banned Book Week is held every September, the perfect time to raise awareness for the increasing problem of book banning in schools and libraries around the country. Increasingly, these bans target books that feature characters and themes related to race, equity and LGBTQ and gender inclusivity. This list includes some of the most banned and challenged books across the country today.
