Banned Books Quiz

Winners and Answers for 2013

Think you know Banned Books? Take the quiz!

During Banned Books Week, NCSU Libraries invites you to take the Banned Books quiz! See how many banned and challenged books* and their authors you can identify from the information given.

Some questions are tricky, but there are no trick questions. Two winners will receive a 2013 Banned Book Week t-shirt (men’s and women’s sizes available). Click the image on the right to see a larger version in a new window.


Entries will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. Friday, September 27, 2014. Entries received after that time will not be eligible for prizes. One entry per person, please. For an answer to be correct, both the title and the author must be correct. Points are not deducted for spelling, but answers must be recognizable to the scorekeeper. Book titles should be the full name of the book (for example, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" rather than "Edgar Sawtelle." Author names should include first and last name, and should be the name for which the author is more famously known in conjunction with his or her books (for example, "Mark Twain" rather than "Samuel Clemens").


Entrants tied for the highest number of correct answers will be put in a drawing a for a 2013 Banned Book Week t-shirt (men’s and women’s sizes available).

To be eligible for prizes, you must be an NCSU student, faculty, or non-Libraries staff member. (Libraries staff members are not eligible.)

Winners will be announced and contacted during the first week of October. Check back during the first week of October for all correct answers.

Thank you for taking the Banned Books quiz!

* The American Library Association defines a "challenge" as "an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others."
