Banned Books Week: The Grapes of Wrath

In honor of Banned Books Week, National Public Radio featured this story on Morning Edition about the contentious history of The Grapes of Wrath and the famous photograph of a copy being burned. Rick Wartzman's book, Obscene in the Extreme, explores the complete history of the novel's banning. To hear the whole radio story, read an excerpt from Wartzman's book, and see the photograph, head on over to NPR.
