It’s hard to avoid news of book bans and challenges around the country right now. We want to take this opportunity to remind you of some resources we’ve put together for librarians, educators, and others interested in preserving access to books.
Resources for Handling Challenges
Our blog post Be Prepared: Censorship Resources from 2021 has been continually updated with links and information to help you prepare for challenges in your institution.
Justification for Purchase
We’ve also put together a list of titles published by Lerner Publishing Group or Lerner Publisher Services publishing partners that we are aware of having been challenged or banned, along with the praise, awards, reviews, and recognition that these titles have received.
Wear Your Love for Banned Books on Your Sleeve
Our Stand with the Banned CafePress store has “I’m with the banned” merch, from t-shirts to coffee mugs. All proceeds go to support Unite Against Book Bans.
