From the American Library Association comes a must-read challenge for book lovers and literary activists to explore!

This interactive recommended reading list presents readers with a different banned or challenged book to explore each week. The perfect gift for all bibliophiles and social justice activists, this journal is far more than a simple list of reads. Each recommended title features a synopsis, review, and prompt for reflection, drawing on the expertise of editors from the association and its book review magazine Booklist, delving into why the book was censored. The titles span categories and genres, from fantasy and graphic novel to nonfiction and romance, but all have been challenged or banned at some point.

Published in partnership with Sourcebooks
