Troubled Tomes

It's that time of the year when we start thinking about summer plans and, in particular, summer reading. We've got our annual Summer Reading List special coming up soon, and this year it's the Banned Books Edition. Josh and Ray will be discussing some of those books, but they'd love to hear if there is a banned or challenged book you've got on your summer reading list. Tell us what the book is, what the controversy around it is, and why you plan to read it. If you make a good case for your pick, we might even invite you to discuss the book on air. In the meantime, please enjoy these episodes from the archive dealing with troubled tomes and controversial literature.
