Recently there has been an increase in the discussion regarding banning books in the United States. According to the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, which keeps track of challenges and banning attempts, over 1500 books were affected by censorship attempts.
A list of the most frequently challenged and banned books from 2001 to 2021 can be found on the American Library Association’s website.
The BMCC Library has many of these books. How many have you read?
