>Banned Book Week – Anne Rice

>Banned Book Week runs from September 29th through October 6th. Today I’m spotlighting one of my favorite authors, Anne Rice. I’ve been reading her for years, and she never fails to enthrall me with her prose. Don’t forget that there’s something special coming on Friday.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty; Beauty’s Punishment; Beauty’s Release
by Anne Rice (under the pseudonym, A.N. Roquelaure)

These books were removed in 1996 from the Columbus, Ohio Metropolitan Library shelves based on the complaint of one patron who deemed the books pornographic. The three works were also deemed offensive in 1992 in Gwinnett County, Georgia’s Lake Lanier Regional Library system and removed from the shelves.
