To many of us, the idea of a banned book seems uncommon, something from a past age or confined to a particularly totalitarian setting. But there are still books banned around the world today, including in some countries that might surprise you.
Here, in no particular order, are 10 books that are either currently banned or are limited in availability due to a ban:
- Tennessee authorities have charged 2 minors with starting the massive wildfires that killed 14 people last month.
- Donald Trump has picked former WWE CEO Linda McMahon to lead the Small Business Administration.
- At least 2 women say Stanford offered them money to close federal probes into its handling of sexual assault cases.
- Dozens of employees and patients say the US's biggest psychiatric chain locks up people for insurance money.
