Lady Chatterley's Lover to feature at Banned Books promotion

15th September 2010

Lady Chatterley's Lover will be one of the many novels to feature in a new reader promotion being run at libraries across the country.

The Banned Books initiative, which will be launched on September 25th, aims to raise awareness of literary censorship.

It will take place at 28 library services across England, each of which will display sets of 50 books that have, at some point, been banned or challenged.

As well as D.H. Lawrence's famous novel Lady Chatterley's Lover, other books to feature will include The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum and The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin.

Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code will also be part of the promotion, as it was banned by Christian leaders in the Lebanon.

When questioned on his website as to whether The Da Vinci Code is anti-Christian, Dan Brown replied: 'No. This book is not anti-anything. It's a novel. I wrote this story in an effort to explore certain aspects of Christian history that interest me.'
