Top Ten Challenged Books of 2010

BANNED BOOKS WEEK 2011

 From ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom : “A challenge is defined as a formal, written complaint, filed with a library or school requesting that materials be removed because of content or appropriateness. The number of challenges reflects only incidents reported. We estimate that for every reported challenge, four or five remain unreported. Therefore, we do not claim comprehensiveness in recording challenges.”
