Freedom to Read

Books have been banned across the country because of profanity, violence or sex. Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, for example, was banned at an Ohio school because it dealt with homosexuality, drugs, sex, and abuse.

“Even if some people don’t agree with the content it covers,” said teacher librarian Ms. Bryan, “Banned Books Week celebrates freedom to read and highlights books that have been banned.”

In most cases these “inappropriate” books contain powerful life lessons and morals, so don’t worry about getting in trouble for your choice of reading, and celebrate Banned Books Week by checking out a copy of a banned book today.
