Read Great Banned Books

September 26, 2014

My new list of this weeks adult banned books, and ones I hope everyone will buy and enjoy. I’m sure many of you already own, or have read several as some are classics, but have been banned for one reason or another.

Beloved — Toni Morrison, 1987–sexual content

The Handmaid’s Tale — Margaret Atwood, 1985–anti religious

The Color Purple — Alice Walker, 1982–violent

The Lovely Bones — Alice Sebold, 2002–frightening

Lady Chatterley’s Lover — D.H. Lawrence, 1928–

Speak — Laurie Halse Anderson, 1999–glorifies drinking, cussing, premarital sex

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings — Maya Angelou, 1969–encourages deviant behavior

Read, Enjoy, and Cherish a good book!
