Slaughterhouse-Five, a┬ánovel by Kurt Vonnegut, was banned by the school board in the city of Republic, Missouri on the account of its contents being profane and violating the teachings of the Holy Bible. Banned as in removed from the curricula and the school’s library. So, this would be a good time to read it, before it’s also prohibited in your banana republic.
