LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

he American Library Association strives to keep America conscious of our constitutional right to read. This week in Books, Weekly Alibi's Blake de Pastino takes a look at this year's attempts to restrict that right, as well as a list of books that are either banned or being challenged throughout our country.

Also take a look at new non-fiction by authors Mike Davis, Chastity Bono, and Charis Wilson, as well as many quick looks at new books in the Mini-Reviews section.
