Silencing a Mockingbird

For the next couple of weeks the library will highlight a banned or challenged book to increase awareness. Today's featured title is To Kill a Mockingbird.

Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, was banned from a Canadian classroom in 2009 because of racial slurs and offensive language found in the book.
