The Daily Tar HeelThursday, September 13, 19845 Store protests banning books Dictionary was removed from libraries in four states because of "objectionable language," the release states. The Diary of Anne Frank was challenged in Virginia and Alabama because it contained "sexually offensive passages" and was "a real downer." The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was called "racist" and To Kill a Mockingbird was labeled a "filthy, trashy novel" in New York, the press release stated. Eisdorfer said, "This has not' happened just in history. It is amazing that it is so ongoing, such a current theme." In 1983, the V.C. Andrews trilogy Flowers in the Attic, If There be Thorns and Petals on the Wind were all challenged at a Rhode Island high school because they contained offensive passages concerning incest and sexual intercourse, according to the this year's. Newsletter On Intellectual Freedom. The Judy Blume books, Are You There God? It's Me Margaret, Forever and Deenie have been challenged in Iowa and Minnesota for objectionable subject matter. Even Mother Goose: Old Nursery Rhymes has been challenged on the grounds of being anti-Semitic, the newsletter states. Other banned books include Go Ask Alice, Harriet the Spy, Lord of the Flies, Cujo and Flowers for Algernon. Eisdorfer said she feels the bookshop should take a stand. "We feel that if one book is banned, it is too easy to ban the second. Though we don't want Penthouse, why not also ban Romeo and Juliet, or Slaughterhouse-FiveV Though this is the first year for the event, Eisdorfer said the bookstore intends to make it yearly. "We want to make a point," Eisdorfer said. "Books should not be banned anywhere at anytime." The readings and book displays will be in the Pit today and tomorrow from noon until 1 p.m. Each of these advertised items is required to be readily available f sale at or below the advertised price in each A&P Store, except as specifically noted in this ad. By VANESSA ORR Staff Writer Bull's Head Bookshop is staging a . protest in the Pit defending books which have been banned. As a part of Banned Book Week, the store will present readings of familiar passages from well-loved books, all challenged or banned at one time, and will also have a display of banned books for public viewing, said Bull's Head Assistant Manager Erica Eisdorfer. "We feel that since we are in a university atmosphere and a place of learning, that this is the place to take a stand against censorship." Eisdorfer said. Students, teachers and people from the community will read challenged material from the Bible, Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, JD.: Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and others. "Throughout history, books have been banned by individuals or groups seeking to protect themselves, their families and their communities from what they considered objectionable," states a press release from the American Booksellers Association.
