Why are books banned/challenged??

People often wonder on what grounds people  attempt to ban or challenge a book. There are many reasons. The ALA OIF has compiled an infographic that illustrates the different reasons. The most popular among them is ” sexually explicit”. Seven of the books on the ALA list of top ten banned/challenged books of 2016 were banned/challenged for that vague reason. For more information about banned books visit the ALA’s website.
