What's your favorite banned book?

September 25th-October 2nd is Banned Books Week. Commemorated every year by the American Library Association, the purpose of this week is to draw attention to books that have been challenged, banned or withdrawn from library collections. The ALA believes that since books represent freedom of speech, they should be available for everyone to judge and evaluate.

Below is a list of the Wheelock Library staff's favorite banned books.

Let us know what YOUR favorite is!
