Do people really still try to ban books?
Yes! It’s hard to say just how many challenges are broughteach year; many occur behind the scenes and are neverpublicly reported. What we do know is that the majority opeople in most communities don’t approve o censorshipand are grateul or our help protecting the reedom to readin their schools and libraries.
Where are books challenged and banned?
 
In small towns and larger cities in almost every state—north, south, east and west.
Why are they challenged/banned?
 
Proanity,sexual content, reerences to suicide or death, witchcrat,drugs, non-traditional amilies, homosexuality…practicallyanything imaginable.
Who challenges them?
 
Parents, grandparents,aunts, uncles, school ofcials, religious and communityleaders and interest groups. Oten an alternativeassignment isn’t enough: censors want “inappropriate”books removed rom the hands o all students.
 You might be surprised…
 
to know that mostchallenges we work on involve books or teens. Many targetbooks taught to Advanced Placement or Honors classes.
