Annie on my Mind

Artist: Mallory McFall

Banned/Challenged Book: Annie’s on my Mind

Reason for Banning: In 1993, the Olathe, Kansas school board voted to remove the book from junior and senior high libraries because it depicted a lesbian relationship between two teenagers.

Excerpt from Artist’s Statement: This book has withheld the test of time and although it is 30 years old, the problems around young members of the LGBT communities are still facing oppression to this day.
