Banned Book Week is coming to a close and we've asked our authors if they thought their books would be banned. We received a variety of responses from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Some, like Conor Walsh, author of Little Glass Men, felt that his current book would not be, but he's pretty sure the book he's working on now would. Others, like Chip Davis, "write as though my sainted grandmother will read it and act accordingly." (Squirrel Bait, compared to Trail of the Raven, Haiti, might be a different story, as a reader pointed out!) There were some, like Richard Paolinelli, who said while the content might not be what gets his books banned, his political views as the author could be a cause for some to ban his work.
