Ever wondered what books have been banned by schools and libraries? Keep the list close-at-foot with Banned Book Socks! To Kill a Mockingbird. The Great Gatsby. 1984. The Catcher in the Rye. James and the Giant Peach. Gone with the Wind. Catch-22. Native Son. Clockwork Orange. Lord of the Flies. Ulysses. Song of Solomon. The list of books banned in the distant [and not so distant] past just goes on and on.
Some of our most revered books were banned in some communities not that long ago. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was banned shortly after its release in 1884. Toni Morrison’s Beloved published just 30 years ago in 1987 has been intermittently banned in some communities because of the frank nature of its narrative. Our Banned Book Socks include one sock with the titles blacked out and the other sock listing the books proudly.
There has always been great power in the written word. The Banned Book Sockscelebrate those books that tackled difficult subjects with insight and honesty and made us more aware, smarter and better able to tackle life’s obstacles. These Banned Book Socks are tailor-made for all of the book lovers out there and for those in your life!
