Have you ever read Bridge to Terabithia or The Hunger Games? Then you’ve read a book banned for its religious viewpoint.
What about And Tango Makes Three or I Am Jazz? They were banned for having LGBTQ+ characters.
American Library Association’s Banned Books Week is September 22 – 28. It celebrates the wide range of books that have been challenged in their own libraries across the nation.
If you would like to pick up your own banned book to read, we have a full reading list ready for you.
