Banned Books as Graphic Novels

Today we're taking a look at a new way to read two exceptional books that have been challenged and banned:

ANNE FRANK: THE DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL has been banned from schools in Virginia, Alabama, and Texas for being too upsetting, sexually offensive, and downright pornographic.* FAHRENHEIT 451 has been removed from required reading lists at schools in Mississippi and challenged in Texas for offensive language, violence, and Bible burning.**

These chilling stories show us the darkest sides of humanity from the past and a possible future. The urge to protect ourselves from the horrible things they depict is strong, but their messages of pain and hope must be heard and understood.

Both of these classics are now available as authorized graphic novels from Hill and Wang.
