Do You Read Banned Books?

What do The Grapes of Wrath, Little Red Riding Hood, Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary and Playboy have in common?

Every one of these works has been censored somewhere in the United States. Censorship comes in many forms. Whenever a school board librarian, newspaper editor, politician, or store owner tries to take away your right to decide what you want to see, hear or read, that is censorship.

In honor of Banned Books Week (September 26 -- October 3), I took a quiz to see which classic novels of the 20th century have also been banned or challenged. Take the quiz to find out for yourself.

Blatantly stolen from the ACLU website. They sent it to me first in an email so I think they won't mind. ; )
