Kansas Prisoners Banned From Reading 'A Game of Thrones' Along With Thousands of Other Books

From Anthony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange to George R.R. Martin's A Game of Thrones, thousands of books have been banned from entering Kansas' state prisons over the last two decades, with hundreds added to the list of "censored" literature over the last two years.

Sharing the Kansas Department of Correction's banned book list on Twitter, Books to Prisoners, an organization that facilitates book donations to prisons, called the sheer number of books banned in detention facilities across the state "unbelievable."


Yes, by all means, let's keep the prison population illiterate & ill informed

When I read that CDCR had banned The New Jim Crow by Alexander, I nearly came unglued. Violence? Ok, I can see the justification (though overused). But this book talks about racism woven into our federal government. I guess they fear an uprising if inmates were to have a better understanding of why they're there.
