Banned Book Week

Banned book “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeline L’Engle has been consistently among American Library Association’s list of frequently challenged or banned books since publication in 1962. Some protest that the book is too Christian, while others believe that it undermines Christian doctrines by presenting alternative views of good and evil.

Banned Book Week, Sept. 23-29
