John Steinbeck, author of the GRAPES OF WRATH, OF MICE AND MEN, and EAST OF EDEN, is generally accepted as one of the greatest American authors of the twentieth century. His classic books are frequently studied in school. However, some people object to the books' language and themes, believing that they are not appropriate reading for young people. In JOHN STEINBECK: BANNED, CHALLENGED, AND CENSORED, author Maurene J. Hinds discusses Steinbeck's life and times and analyzes several of his most controversial works. She also explores the history of book censorship, showing why it occurs and possible ways to address it. She helps readers make up their own minds about whether books should be banned.
