Banned Books Everyone Should Read: The Hate U Give

 

In honor of the American Library Association’s annual Banned Books Week, which condemns censorship and urges free access to information, we asked Falvey librarians and staff to pick a book from the list of the most frequently banned and challenged books and tell us why it’s a must read.

The Hate U Give is a really powerful Young Adult book dealing with police violence in communities of color from the perspective of a young black woman.”—Sarah Wingo, MA, MSI, Liaison Librarian for English Literature, Theatre, and Romance Languages
