Do you read banned books?

Do you read banned books?

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.

Banned Books Week is September 23 – 29.

Join UCF Libraries for our Read Stricted: The Dilemmas Surrounding Reading, Censorship, & Challenged Books discussion on Thursday, September 27, 2018 1:30 in LIB-223 about banned books and what books are on the ALAs list of Top 10 Challenged Books in 2017.

See what redacted books you can check out from our display on the John C. Hitt and Curriculum Materials Center Circulation desks.
