DEBORAH CALDWELL STONE ON BANNED BOOKS IN AMERICA

In the 1982 Supreme Court decision Island Trees School District v. Pico, the justices ruled that school officials can’t ban books in libraries simply because of their content.

However, attempts to censor syllabi or ban books in one form or another continue to shape the American education system.

In this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI, Deborah Caldwell Stone, director of the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom, discusses the past, present and future of banned books.
