Challenged and Banned Books

(Presented to Mrs. Welch's 9th Grade Honors English)
Each year, the American Library Association recognizes the last week in September as Banned Books Week.  This is a time to reflect on how authors and their works have called attention to social injustice, examined the plight of individuals or introduced a revolutionary way of thinking and living. 
More importantly, it is a time to be grateful for our right to read books that interest us, intrigue us and open us up to new perspectives.
