Defending YA Literature against the Pharisees and Censors: Is It Worth the Trouble?
Thompson, Julian
ALAN Review, v18 n2 p2-5 Win 1991
Examines efforts to censor young adult literature and identifies varieties of censorship. Asserts that it is normal and appropriate for young readers to (1) have a relationship with vulgarity; (2) be curious about sex; and (3) question authority. Argues that complaints against books should be addressed by the overall educational community rather than by school boards. (SG)
