Quark Xpress: Banned Books Week

A series of posters that aim to generate interest for the annual Banned Books Week. It's astounding how many books were banned from libraries and schools once, and even up to this day. 
Banned Books Week Poster I, scary
Banned Books Week Poster IV; satanic

Banned Books Week Poster II; sexual
Banned Books Week Poster III; gay
These posters were made for a school assignment and are in no way endorsed or sanctioned by Schlow Centre Region Library or its employees. The logo and sponsor that appear on them were solely used as part of the assignment.

Hello.

I am a student at Chandler Gilbert Community College in Chandler, Arizona and I would love to be able to use these four images of banned book week posters for a display I am working on for my honors project.

If you could please let me know if that would be possible, I would greatly appreciate it!

I would LOVE to know where I can find articles or something on why these books were banned. I've read the books and seen the movies and just do not understand how they would be banned for such reasons!

Thanks!

Hello. I'm a high school student. I'm a HUGE fan of Alice in Wonderland, Where the Wild Things Are, and Lord of the Rings. I would love to see some articles on the subject of these being banned with explanations. I have read the books and seen the movies tons of times and don't understand how they could be bad.

If you could tell me where you found this information, I would be greatly appreciative!
