Check out the map to see where books have been challegned and banned during the past couple of years. Do you know of a book challenge that hasn’t been included on the map?  Tell us about it!

Also, be sure to read the poem “Manifesto” by Ellen Hopkins. You may have read her work before, she’s written several popular books including Crank & Glass, both of which were recently challenged at a school library in Norman, OK.

About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough that people don't tell me I sound like a character from "Fargo" anymore. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.
