I saw an AARP Bulletin and it mentioned something about Harry Potter being banned on the cover so I looked at it & found a list of books that at one point were banned or had attempted to be by American schools & libraries. They include many classics like the Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorn for its adultuary theme, The Grapes of Wrath by John Stienbeck for it's language, Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe for being too political, I Know Why the Cage the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelo for too much sex. Remember these; The Adventures of Huckelberry Fin, Gone With the Wind, Of Mice and Men, The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mocking Bird, One Flew Over the Cukoo's Nest, In Cold Blood, The Color Purple, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl? Well they were all banned at some time for being socially offensive. The American Library Association annually sponsors (in part) a banned books week from Sept. 25- Oct. 2 that celebrates the first amendment draws attention to the harms of censorship. Imagine not being exposed some of these powerful works of literature. Life is not always kind & people should celebrate that they have the right to write and read about it.
Peace, Love, & Flowers
