Field Report 2022 (25-pack)
The 2022 Field Report examines the unparalleled rise in attacks against the freedom to read in 2022, including trends, the ways in which libraries are under siege, and the most cited reasons for book challenges. Along with the list of the Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2022, the Field Report summarizes attempts to censor the 20 most frequently targeted titles in 2022, including Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe, All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson, and The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison. Finally, the Field Report assesses how a cultural resurgence in hate and intolerance has fueled many of the censorship attacks on libraries, the materials and services they provide, and library workers.
This annual report is the perfect handout for those who don’t know about the scope of censorship in libraries, and readers who want to stay informed about recent attempts to restrict access to information.
Use the Field Report to stimulate discussions and bring readers together to support the freedom to read during Banned Books Week and throughout the year! Let Freedom Read! Learn more at ala.org/bbooks.
