The American Library Association has just released its annual list of the top 10 most challenged books. This year, Lauren Myracle's young adult series --ttyl, ttfn and l8r,g8r -- tops the list.( Last year, a picture book, And Tango Makes Three, was the most challenged book in America.)
Our Library sponsors two Banned Books book clubs -- one for kids and the other for teens. The next meeting of Jr. Banned Books Club is Monday, April 16 at 7 p.m., and we will be discussing Sideways Stories From Wayside School. In May, our Banned Books Club for middle and high school students will meet (at a date to be determined) to discuss censorship and racial stereotypes in some of the Tintin books.
