When people talk about book bans, they're typically focusing on libraries and school curricula.
But The Marshall Project would like to remind you that bans are alive and well in the prison system, with much less attention on and outrage over them.
Even if you're not as troubled by these restrictions as The Marshall Project is, you may find its new database to be interesting, academically.
It catalogues books banned in prison on a state-by-state basis, when available.
At the time of this posting, The Marshall Project planned to add lists from Louisiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oregon, and Washington, along with any written policies from those and other states.
