PEABODY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) —The Peabody Institute Library has started a new book club for teens featuring books that have been banned, mostly by school districts in other parts of the country.

Allison Bridgewater is the senior teen librarian for the Peabody Institute Library and said the books range from classics such as "To kill A Mockingbird," "1984," and "Fahrenheit 451," to more modern titles like "Eleanor & Park" and "The Hate U Give."

"A banned book club I think is a great way to encourage them to read something they wouldn't really read normally and discuss it with their peers," she told WBZ NewsRadio's Carl Stevens.

The club begins Sept. 7, and will meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m.
