Banned Books Week roundup

Every year, books are challenged as being offensive to someone. Most of these challenges occur in public schools. My favorite banned book? I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou. Her story is a sad and compelling one about a woman that started with very little in life and ended up being one of the most remarkable poets of the 20th century (and today!). Check out these links for more banned book goodness:
