Don’t Read These Books!

Posted by UCSB Library on September 27, 2010

Harry Potter and the Sorcer’s Stone, The Color Purple, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Catcher in the Rye, and The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh were all banned or challenged for a variety of reasons.

Why should we care? Do we care? Can you guess the reason(s) why they may have been banned or challenged?

Use the dots provided to vote for why you think the 5 titles were either banned or challenged. The reasons include racism, offensive or inappropriate language, homosexuality, nudity or sexually explicit, drugs, suicide or violence and finally, religious viewpoint. This interactive portion of the “Don’t Read These Books!” display is right outside the Group Commons.
