Article: “10 Banned Books That Made a Comeback”

Another interesting Banned Books Week article. Take a look here to read about 10 books that have made a comeback after being banned in some places. Author Tim Handorf, says this in the article,

"There’s a litany of books that have been challenged during the last 20 years and continue to face disapproval among parents, schools and organizations who want these books pulled from the shelves. Despite repeated challenges and some restrictions, these books have made a comeback in many educational settings and libraries because of their educational, social and literary importance to society." (emphasis mine)

It's interesting stuff.

Celebrate YOUR freedom to read at the WOMS library.
