“More Than Books” Podcast – Ep. 39: A Banned Books Week Postscript

Description:  Welcome to the More Than Books Podcast! In this episode Joel and Colin reflect on the history of how controversial texts have been received and how there should be more to Banned Books Week than talking about the latest young adult literature being challenged in public and school libraries. Examples discussed range from the 4th century BCE (the suppression of apocryphal religious texts) up through today (the current state of news media in Turkey).
