This week is Banned Book Week and the Berkeley Public Library has erected a mobile of books that have been banned in various countries. It’s on display in the atrium of the Central Library through Oct. 31.
It’s the fourth year that the library has displayed banned books in this way. We spot The Da Vinci Code up there — the bestselling Dan Brown book was banned in Lebanon after complaints it was offensive to Christianity.
The UC Libraries have links to maps of communities that have banned books and other banned books trivia.
Now we’re intrigued as to what the other books are… guess we’ll have to mosey on down there to find out.
