Why have these books have been banned or challenged by a school or public library?

This past week (September 29 - October 6) was Banned Books Week.  This annual event is sponsored by the American Library Association and other organizations concerned with protecting the freedom to read.  This observation began 30 years ago to call attention to the books that have been banned or challenged from school or public libraries around the United States.
