Banned and Burned: Banned Worthy Books - Winter 2020


Have you ever wondered what calls for a book to be banned? How could anyone burn a book? Isn’t that considered opposition of free speech? This course is the study of several works that have been banned by various agencies, countries, or groups at some point in time. We will explore these works to discover what messages they have for our culture and why in the world they have banned and burned!

1984 challenges authority and government. Many schools and libraries banned The Catcher in the Rye for being negative and undermining authority. The Grapes of Wrath was banned by countries such as Ireland and Turkey accusing sellers of spreading propaganda. How The Passage to India tests racial prejudices was too much for some.

Due to gravity of content and language used in some of these novels, this course is best suited for mature dispositions. This course includes reading comprehension and critical thinking. Because of the dialogue nature of this class, students will need a functioning microphone.

NOTE: Registration deadline is December 30, 2019.
