This Week: Banned Books

We explore banned books on this episode of The Children’s Hour. What is a banned book? Who decides which books are to be banned? When a book is banned, is it still possible to read it? Our summer interns have researched and explored banned books. We even hear a portion of a banned book read by its author, and hear a book review about a book that has the topic of banned books as part of the storyline.
