September 23-29 is Banned Books Week, a week that promotes the freedom to read. Every day this week, I’ll be sharing three banned books that you should add to your TBR lists.
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
This may be one of the most well-known banned books in America. It was banned in many schools for its language, specifically, use of the n-word, and it’s depiction of racism.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I wasn’t aware this popular trilogy had ever been banned or challenged until I started doing research to prepare for this series. It was banned in some schools because teachers and parents thought it was inappropriate for the age group that it was marketed for.
Saga, Vol. 1 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
This currently-running comic book series was challenged because some people saw it as “anti-family.” Issue 12 in the series was temporarily restricted on Apple because one of the panels featured an image of two men engaging in oral sex, although after some outcry, it was made available again.
