Banned in 2016
It's common to say that no books are actually banned anymore in 2016. And yet at the very start of this year, a children's picture book was pulled from publication by Scholastic because of public outcry. Was it obscene, did it promote illegal activity, or perhaps did it have glaring factual errors? None of the above. It was too historically accurate, and therefore counter to politically correct thinking. Do you see any of the Banned Books Week promoters lobbying to get it back in print? Don't hold your breath. These are very likely the same people who got it banned in the first place. Read about the first banned book of 2016.
Fortunately the author decided to self-publish instead, and the book went on to Amazon best-seller status and just won a Dragon Award. Read about the backstory of Ctrl-Alt-Revolt! here.
