Go 'Way!!!

This week is Banned Books Week, in which the American Library Association highlights its annual Top Ten List of Most Challenged Books: effectively a curated snapshot of the American state of mind. 
Every year since 1990, hundreds of complaints by parents, educators and the public have poured into the association’s online reporting system. There were 323 challenges to published books recorded in 2016. The details are confidential: The association is more interested in how people think about specific books and censorship than in publishing who called for a ban and where.
