Open Road Media Video on Banned Books Week


At the beginning of the video Natalie Goldberg says that a teacher for fired for presenting her book. Did that really happen? Anyone have a article or source to back that up?

Then the second author, Ken Bruen, is a guy saying his agent hated the book and did not want to publish it. That is not a banned book. Actually it undermines the whole video. The second example you throw out is some author whose agent did not like the book???? Please!!!! What a joke.

This whole banned book thing is a bunch of crap. Books getting challenged for being age appropriate. So what?

Someone give your best example of a book banning that has happened in the last 3 years. Also back it up with some proof that it happened.
