Podcast: Careful Now. Down With This Sort of Thing…
April 7, 2014
This week, Rob and Kate are talking about Banned Books, or books that have been banned. They were inspired by recent events in the UK – Chris Grayling, Justice Secretary, has been accused of effectively banning books in UK prisons after passing legislation that means books can no longer be sent to prisoners.
They talk about the “Top Ten Banned Books of all time” http://www.shortlist.com/shortlists/10-banned-books, as well as honourable mentions for a few others, then focus for a while on children’s and young adult’s books that were banned for a variety of reasons.
