Banned Books Week Observes its 34th Year – September 27, 2016

Even before the printing press was invented, some people tried to ban books. They’re still trying.

Whether the motivation is political or religious, or just protective parenting, efforts to see certain books suppressed seem as persistent as the seasons. So Banned Books week is here again to remind us of that.

The American Library Association has released a video that lists the top teen banned books of the past year. You can see it on the North Bay Report webpage at KRCB dot org/news.
