Do you have a favorite banned or challenged book? In conjunction with the Newhouse School’s upcoming year-long First Amendment celebration, the library is working on plans for Banned Books Week 2007, September 29 – October 6, 2007. We are creating a web page with a list of banned or challenged books and reasons, and hope you will contribute your favorites. Using the form available at http://library.syr.edu/information/banned_books, please send the title of the book (or film or musical work, etc.) you have selected, the reason and year it was banned/challenged (if available), and any explanatory comments you want to add.
If you are not sure what books have been banned or challenged, please see the extensive listings on the American Library Association web site at: http://www.ala.org/bbooks/.
Please contact Tasha Cooper, firstname.lastname@example.org, for additional information.
