The Most Banned Books in America's Libraries
Apr 28 2023
2022 saw a surge in book challenges and bans across the country. The brand new "State of America's Library" report by the American Library Association counted 1,269 book challenges, a new record for book-banning attempts in our country. Despite the challenges, these libraries still managed to thrive last year. Books are being removed from libraries, school reading lists, and bookstores because individuals or groups object to the subject matter inside the pages. To fight this trend, the Authors Guild Banned Books Club has been reading frequently banned books all year long. This month, they are reading “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison.
