Banned Books week is coming to a close, but I hope you had time to take a look at lists on your own and celebrate the freedom to read and the freedom of expression. Throughout the week, I have shared just some of the many books that have been challenged or banned throughout the country and thanked those who work tirelessly to ensure that we are able to read and express ourselves freely.
To close our Banned Books Week, I’d like to share just 5 of the commonly challenged books:
- “Animal Farm” by George Orwell
- “The Diary of a Girl” by Anne Frank
- “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” by Harriet Beecher Stowe
- “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemingway
- The Holy Bible
Feel free to express your views in the comments. Again, I hope that you took the time to research other commonly challenged books as we wrap up Banned Books Week. Thanks for reading!
