Field Report 2021 Download (Email)


Digital downloads such as poster and bookmark files and eBooks, cannot be purchased by phone, fax, or email using a purchase order—they must be purchased online using a credit card.

Banned Books Week is September 18 - 24, 2022.

The 2021 Field Report contains descriptions of the 20 most frequently challenged titles from 2021, including Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe, All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson, and Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope Pérez. The Field Report also includes a list of the Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2021. Challenges to library materials occurred at an unprecedented rate in 2021 and children’s and YA books pertaining to race, gender, and sexual identity remained the titles most targeted for censorship.

This annual report is the perfect handout for those who may think book-banning is a thing of the past, and readers who want to stay informed of recent attempts to restrict their access to information.
