15 of ??? Readers — Are You Another?

submitted by laipa@augsburg.edu

So far, 15 people have stamped our display to indicate they’ve read one of 25 most frequently challenged books of the last 3 years. Are you another?

Stop by Lindell Library’s display for Banned Books Week, September 18-24, 2022, on the street level by the Augsburg yearbooks and put your stamp on our easel to let us know if you are one of our freedom readers!

Books on the frequently challenged books list were banned, challenged, and restricted for LGBTQIA+ content; because they were considered to have sexually explicit images; for profanity and violence; and because they were thought to promote an anti-police message and indoctrination of a social agenda.
