Books have been banned in the United States since the 17 th century. Book banning is
the most widespread form of censorship in the United States, with children’s literature
being the primary target. Book bans in schools increased by 28% in the first half of the
2022-23 academic year according to Pen American. Controversy over banned books
continues today as a widespread form of global censorship.
