The quiz questions are about books that have been challenged or banned in the United States, and each day’s winner will receive a fabulous prize. A big “thank you” to the SweetSpot Coffee Shoppe, Toppers Pizza, and University Health & Counseling Center (UHCS) for their donation of prizes for the contest.
