The American Library Association sponsors Banned Books Week, challenging people to recognize the importance of the First Amendment and celebration the fact that we’re free to read all sorts of books here in the United States, whether they be mystical, scary, sexy, full of swears or whatever some single person might find objectionable. Here’s a link to some frequently challenged books, including great stuff like His Dark Materials, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Beloved, Of Mice and Men, Bridge to Terabithia and the Harry Potter series.
