BBW13_300x250

 

This is a great timeline of books that have been challenged and another list of 25 banned and challenged books. And, lest you should think this is an old-fashioned problem, debates have been ranging in the past few weeks about banning Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park and Ralph Ellison’s “Invisible Man,”  though the Randoplh County, North Carolina school board is reconsidering their decision.
