    It's Banned Books Week!

    '
    Celebrating the Freedom to Read: Sept. 22 - 28, 2013

    The Library of Congress created an exhibit, "Books that Shaped America," that explores books that "have had a profound effect on American life." Below is a list of books from that exhibit that have been banned/challenged.
    http://www.bannedbooksweek.org/censo...tshapedamerica

    Check out the list. I can't believe how many of these books I read by the time I finished high school. My teachers must have been perverts.

    Anybody here read "banned books?" Please share.

    My high school English teacher lent me Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer. It was being sued all over the place in the early '60's as obscene. That's it.

    The link above goes to the Library of Congress exhibit of important, previously banned books, which is worth checking out. You'll recognize many of them.

    For books banned more recently, this site (below) has books by year, from 2004-2013. In 2008, for example, more than one school system banned the Harry Potter books because they promoted witchcraft.

    More info here. Free copies by request.

    Re: It's Banned Books Week!

    Of the ones in the OP's link, I've read the following (or **only some of it).

    The Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger, 1951
    Howl, Allen Ginsberg, 1956
    Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman, 1855**
    To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee, 1960
    Where the Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak, 1963

    Of these, I have the last two in the house, the latter one, I've read to my child and I think Maurice Sendak's other books like Chicken Soup with Rice were brilliant.

    Well, in the words of Homer Simpson, "It was so cruel how they hopped on pop."

    I'm sorry to have kept you waiting, but I'm afraid my walk has become rather sillier recently...

    We're in the midst of Banned Books Week. Has anyone read any banned books recently?

    We have the right to free speech, the right to worship, but we also have the right to read and not be subjected to censorship.

    I borrowed The Perks of Being a Wallflower because a public school near me pulled it off the shelves, accompanied by the usual hysteria. I found nothing objectionable: the usual - a few beers, a little reefer, a little ass, and the high and low points of growing up. Saw the movie version after reading the book and came to the conclusion that the school system was so wrong for banning The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I'm thankful that I went through a school system where nothing was banned - to the best of my knowledge.

    Is this not almost always the case? Looking at the lists, I'm not sure any of them should have been banned anywhere, ever.

    I like they banned Fahrenheit 451.

    how just and right that it is to ban a book who's main theme is burning books

    thanks Ray Bradbury for slapping the idiots in the face.

    Re: It's Banned Books Week!

    When I was at school in the mid eighties, the book The Milkman is on his Way was used in the debate in Parliament to introduce Section 28 of the 1988 act to clamp down on publications with gay themes in them. It was repealed in 2003.

    It was kinda banned from government controlled institutions, so schools and public libraries couldn't stock it, as far as I know. Waterstones bookshops stocked it, and I bought a copy years ago.
