Banned Books Week
J. D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye, Toni Morrison’s Beloved Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, William Golding’s Lord of the Flies, Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Maya Angelou’s I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men, and Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein have all been banned and protested for different reasons. Having just hosted an exhibition on the photographs of Allen Ginsberg and learning about the trial around the publication of HOWL by City Lights Booksellers and Publishers, we're more keenly aware of the fierceness of the fight for the freedom of expression.
