September! Which means it’s Banned Books month here at Bookmans!
What is a censored book and why does it get banned?
Every year the American Library Association releases a compiled list of The 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books. These are titles that for whatever reason were forced to be removed from libraries and schools. Sometimes these requests are denied but often they are accepted and beloved books from authors such as Mark Twain, Maya Angelou, Harper Lee, and MORE are the subject of censorship and deemed too dangerous to read…
Bookmans believes in anti-censorship. We believe in it so much we are willing to wear it on our sleeves. The best part is now SO CAN YOU!
