Books have been challenged or banned from libraries across America for years.  It is always interesting to revisit the lists each year and see what has been challenged or banned and learn the reasons why.  My favorite part of celebrating “Banned Book Week” at WHS is listening to the students talking about how many books they have read from the lists.

Thanks to Mrs. Weise, I have come across this simple list that explains the difference between being challenged or banned.  It also lists the Top 10 Banned or Challenged Classics and the reason’s why.  Be sure to take a look, you might be surprised to see how many are actually used in high school curriculums across America and here at WHS.
