Christopher Corbett, English, in Baltimore Style

The American Library Association’s Banned Books Week is September 25-October 2 this year, and Professor of the Practice of English Christopher Corbett dedicates his latest Baltimore Style column to the history of censored and banned books in America. He writes, “Between 1990 and 2000 there were 6,364 challenges issued against books in America, according to the ALA. But the grim news is that for each challenge reported there may be as many as four or five that go unreported.”

The article, “An American Tradition,” ran in the September/October issue of Baltimore Style.
