Summary Thirteen leading authors of books for young people speak out about the experience of having their work challenged or banned in the United States today. In interviews is Marcus, they reflect on the nature of freedom of expression, the impact of censorship, and the support network that has grown up to defend against attempts to limit those rights. Readers will grasp more fully what is at stake when freedom of expression comes under threat, and of the history that lies behind contemporary First Amendment challenges. -- adapted from jacket
