11th grade English project is requesting information from authors on banned books. Some questions are actually good and should prove to have interesting discussions...
1. What is your opinion on the censoring and banning of books?
2. Do you believe any one has the right to ban or censor books?
3. Why do you think people try to get books censored or banned?
4. If you wrote a book and some one challenged it, and requested it be banned or censored what would your response be?
5. Is there any book that you've read that you believe should be banned from being read by everybody? if so why?
6.Do you think the government has the authority to ban or censor books?
7. Do you think that there should be some kind of line drawn that limits what an author has a right to write about?
8. Have you ever read a book that was banned or censored?
9. What kind of people do you think try to ban books?
10. Why do you think someone would want Huckelberry finn or Harry Potter banned?
thank you in advance for your input.
