September 26-October 3rd is Banned Books Week! It’s a celebration of the freedom to read under the protection of the First Amendment. You can read all about it here on the American Library Association website.

You might be surprised at some of the titles that have been challenged (a formal written request made to remove a book from library shelves).  Here is a fascinating list of the top 100 banned and challenged classics.
