Banned Books Week 2017

What do Drama, The Hunger Games, and Captain Underpants all have in common?

Apart from being wonderful books...each of them has, at one point or another, been banned.

Welcome to Banned Books Week, an annual series of events that celebrates the freedom to read and highlights the importance of free, open access to information. The week brings together the entire book community in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas...even those some may consider unpopular or unorthodox.

Each year, the American Library Association lists the 10 most banned books of the year.

Check out the slideshow below to see which Scholastic titles have previously been banned.
