Celebrate your Right to Read with a Banned or Challenged Book!
Banned and challenged books. What is the difference? A "banned" book is one that has been removed from a school, library, book store, etc. and a "challenged" book is one that has been requested to be removed from a school, library, book store, etc. by a person or particular group. A challenge does not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, it is an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others. As such, challenges are a threat to freedom of speech and choice. Source: www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/banned
