Which Banned Book Influenced You The Most?
“Censorship is the child of fear and the father of ignorance.”
Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom of reading books that have been challenged in some way.
But the books that some people find controversial are actually incredibly helpful for others.
Perhaps a banned book that focused on LGBT topics helped you find the strength to be yourself.
Or maybe a banned book that touched on mental illness gave you the push you needed to seek help.
Or perhaps a banned book was able to educate you on a difficult period in history, allowing you to form your own opinions.
So tell us — which banned book influenced you the most and why? Your response could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post!
