Celebrating controversial literature

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

In school you probably read Mark Twain's classic novels "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn." Both are classics and both are among the most widely banned books in the country. This is Banned Books Week.

Andrea Warnke is with the ACLU. Katherine Paterson is a Vermont author and Newbury award winner who has had her books censored and challenged. They both appeared on The :30 to discuss banned books. Watch the video for more.

The banned book reading is Oct. 4 at Christ Episcopal Church at 64 State Street in Montpelier at 7 p.m. Click here for more information.
