Banned or Challenged Books

Description: Please do not vote on these books. It is not a list asking whether a book SHOULD have been banned or challenged. It is based on the ALA lists of which books HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN banned or challenged in the US. Do feel free to add books Banned or Challenged in the US or in other countries. This is just a first start at entering the ALA lists.
(If you are looking for the LT "Favorite Banned Books" List, you can find it at https://www.librarything.com/list/9921/all/Banned-Books-Week-2014# )
