Blacklisted: Banned Books in America

Why would we ever want to prohibit literature from young people? Rather than banning books and the written word in our schools and libraries across the country, wouldn’t we be better off to share controversial text and teach students how to read and think critically instead? Today on Book Talk we look at why books are blacklisted by the American Library Association; which books have been or are currently banned; and what we should do about it.
