Book Ban Battle Plays Out In Public Schools As More Novels Are Pulled From Shelves

September 17, 2022

Every week this summer, the Teen Banned Book Club met inside a Kutztown, Pennsylvania, bookstore to highlight the novels that frequently appear on the American Library Association’s list of most challenged books.

The club was created last fall by then-eighth grader Joslyn Diffenbaugh after she heard about the increasing efforts in Texas to remove books from public schools.

“The original idea I had was when I first started seeing all the books being banned, especially in states like Texas, where they’d come out with a very, very long list. So I’d start reading the lists of books because I read a lot in my childhood,” Diffenbaugh told “CBS Saturday Morning” co-host Michelle Miller.
