Ever wondered what a banned book is? In the United States approximately 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982. This means that someone found certain content offensive and no longer wanted the public to read. Although, in many cases, these books can provide an education to children, young adults and older adults.
The first Amendment states:
“Congress Shall Make No Law Respecting an Establishment of Religion, or Prohibiting the Free Exercise Thereof; or Abridging the Freedom of Speech, or of the Press; or the Right of the People Peaceably to Assemble, and To Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances.”— First Amendment
Challenging Books is a violation of our first amendment, fight the censorship and read a banned book today!
