Course Description

In recent years, challenges to books have surged. In this course, we will reflect on the history of book banning, the reasons for it, and we will examine some of the titles most consistently controversial. The course will end with a thorough examination of a specific book (likely Twain’s HUCK FINN) and the waged charges against it. (IN-PERSON)
