Last week was Banned Books Week. Is there any book you believe should be banned?

“’50 Shades of Grey’ should be from schools because it’s such a distraction to students and people.”

Brittany Krohn, Princeton

“No. We should have the freedom to read what we want.”

Devon Hedgspeth, Peru

“No. People should have the right to read whatever. You cross a line when you tell someone they can’t read something.”

Jamie Knoll, Henry

“No. I believe in the freedom of speech.”

Brittney Waterhouse, Walnut

“No. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.”

Ted Lindenbusch, Princeton
