The American Library Association (ALA)’s Office for Intellectual Freedom tracks challenges to library, school and university materials and series, and recently released its list of Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2019. In this librarian’s opinion, the surest way to get someone to read a book is to tell them not to read it. Have you ever been told not to read a book? How many of these titles have you read?
