Banned Books Awareness Resource

A new resource for information on banned and challenged books has come to my attention.  What began as a project for R. Wolf Baldassarro to post about one book each week in 2011 has turned into a great resource for everyone who is interested.  His posts have now become part of world.edu. Check out his entries to date to find out more information about when and why a book has been challenged.

Titles include:

The New American Bible



There is still time to register for the Banned Book Challenge. Set your own goal to read any number of banned or challenged books between February 20, 2011 and June 30, 2011. Then, send us reviews, opinions, etc.

Thank you so much for posting this!
I came across your feature while doing a web search and saw my own logo. When I saw that it was posted by a library I eagerly checked it out.
I'm glad I did! Nice to see someone else as passionate about this cause as I am.
Very nice feature on my work, and I truly appreciate it.
If ever we can be of assistance to each other, just let me know!

Sincerely,
R. Wolf Baldassarro

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment. Over the years, I have enjoyed putting together what I think is a pretty good resource for banned and challenged literature and issues of free speech. I was very happy to find your site.
