J.K. Rowling is the famous author of the Harry Potter books, which have delighted children and adults worldwide. However, some people contend that they endorse witchcraft and New Age religion, and they want the books banned. In J.K. ROWLING: BANNED, CHALLENGED, AND CENSORED, author Joan Vos MacDonald discusses censorship through history and of the Harry Potter books in particular. She provides a brief biography of Rowling as well as a summary and analysis of each of the books. She helps readers think about challenges to books and this helps them decide for themselves whether they should be banned.
