Banned Books Week 2020 reading list - book covers

Censorship is alive and well, and great books continue to be a battleground of free expression and access to information. In honor of this year’s Banned Books Week, we have gathered a list of books—both classic and contemporary titles—that have been challenged by school districts, governments, and other bodies of power, including, most recently, in the Burbank Unified School District in California. We encourage you to purchase one or more of these books from a local, Black-owned bookstore near you.
