Forbidden Fruit

Celebrate the freedom to read as we shine a light on a bunch of books that have been challenged and banned in the past few years. In the words of a brave librarian who fought the banning (and burning) of John Steinbeck’s classic The grapes of wrath more than 80 years ago, “Banning books is so utterly hopeless and futile. Ideas don’t die because a book is forbidden reading” Gretchen Knief Schenk (1939, Kern County, California).
