Freedom to Read

by

February 21-27 is Freedom to Read Week.  It’s a reminder that censorship is still very much alive and well here in Canada – just last October, for instance, a parent challenged the presence of To Kill A Mockingbird in Toronto public schools.

In honour of Freedom to Read Week, take a look at a brief history of book bannings and burnings, browse through a list of books and magazines that have been challenged in recent decades, and consider Freeing a Challenged Book.
