I loved Grapes Of Wrath and was amazed to find out it had been banned and burnt! What is wrong with people!
‘In August 1939, by a vote of 4 to 1, the board approved a resolution banning The Grapes of Wrath from county libraries and schools‘
Yes, it‘s traumatic and distressing in places with depictions of abuse (physical and sexual). However, this is a must-read, given that it is a semi-autobiographical novel as well as a #bannedbook- we owe it to the author to allow her message to be heard.
@TrishB @Cinfhen @Balibee146 @BarbaraBB - do give it a go, it has an underlying positivity too, and it fits the #bannedbook prompt for #booked2020....
