Series of Banned Book Covers

Ted Mahsun, of "Manuscripts Don't Burn", Malaysia posts an entry about the UK Independent releasing a series of books that have been banned or challenged. They have great cover art and are also identified on the cover as being banned. They offered special editions to their print readers each week. UK readers can check this week's banned book here.

Banned Books is an exclusive collection of 25 cutting-edge titles, censored classics and literary landmarks by authors including Ernest Hemingway, Vladimir Nabokov, Franz Kafka, Andre Gide, Maya Angelou, William Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, Henry Miller and Ray Bradbury, specially published and packaged for Independent readers.

Join the Pelham Public Library in taking the "Banned Book Challenge." Our Malaysian and Cuban friends would ask you to consider reading a book that is banned in Malaysia or being burned in Cuba.
