“I think one of the quickest ways to get a book read is to ban it,” said Leanne Cheek, teen reading selector and coordinator for Pioneer Library System. Works by J.K. Rowling and John Green share a common burden with well-known titles like Harriet the Spy, The Catcher in the Rye, The Grapes of Wrath, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, The Lorax and The Kite Runner.Each year, during the last week of September, the American Library Association celebrates Banned Books Week and the freedom to read.  By Laura Eastes.
