    Banned

     

    Banned Books Week 2022 will be held September 18 – 24. The theme of this year’s event is “Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us.”

    By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship. The ALA Office for Intellectual Freedom (OIF) compiles lists of challenged books as reported in the media and submitted by librarians and teachers across the country. The Top 10 Challenged Books of 2021 are:

    1. Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe
      Reasons: Banned, challenged, and restricted for LGBTQIA+ content and because it was considered to have sexually explicit images
    2. Lawn Boy by Jonathan Evison
      Reasons: Banned and challenged for LGBTQIA+ content and because it was considered to be sexually explicit
    3. All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson
