I’m reading Martian Chronicles with my Advanced kids, where Ray Bradbury begins to allude to censorship and freedom of speech in his chapter called, UsherII. He fully expounds on that idea in Fahrenheit 451. Firemen don’t put out fires in this story, they set them. On books. Ironic how THAT book used to be banned! In honor of BANNED BOOKS WEEK, I’ve presented you with the almighty list of books that have been banned at one point in time in our history. Thanks to the Maricopa County Library District in Arizona for compiling this list of books and other media! See which of your favorites made the BANNED list at one time. Then read or listen to all the rest! There’s not a bad banana in the bunch!
