Mapping Book Bans and Challenges

For those of you who think that book bannings and challenges are just a think of the past, check out the google map that tracks cases recorded by the American Library Association (ALA) from 2007-2011. 

Click on a pin to view the details of the ban or challenge if you want to feel ill, keeping in mind that the map only represents about 20-25% of bans and challenges since most bans aren't reported.

What year is it again?  Are kids still saying "it's a free country"?
