Diverse Books are Frequently Banned and Challenged

Books about LGBTQIA issues, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities are frequently the subject of bans and challenges.

Books with diverse content make up the majority of titles on ALA's annual list of the most banned and challenged books year after year.

This year, celebrate Banned Books Week by adding some of these titles to your reading list!
