Banned Books Book Club

for teens and adults

What's all the fuss about banned books? Join our Banned Books Book Club to learn more! Each month, we'll read a book banned by some community in the United States, discuss why it was banned, discuss the book, and hopefully have a good time fighting the good fight against ignorance and fear!
