READINGS of the 2010 most challenged books

NEW EXHIBIT by Professor Robert Sedlack’s Graphic Design 3 Class


 Banned Books Week is the only national celebration of the freedom to read. It was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than 11,000 books have been challenged since 1982.  According to the American Library Association, there were 348 challenges reported to the Office of Intellectual Freedom in 2010, and many more go unreported.
