Dori Hillestad Butler for the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out!

Banned Books Week, Office for Intellectual Freedom

Throughout Banned Books Week, we will continue to feature videos from both the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out and the 50 State Salute to Banned Books Week. This morning, we present Dori Hillestad Butler, author of My Mom’s Having a Baby! A Kid’s Month-by-Month Guide to Pregnancy, the fourth most frequently challenged book of 2011. Butler’s book was challenged due to nudity, sex education, being sexually explicit, and unsuited to age group.

This video was produced by members of the Association of American Publishers who have asked some of the country’s top authors, “What banned book are you reading?”

Watch this video and more on the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out YouTube channel.
