Since 1982, Banned Books Week has been an annual awareness campaign to celebrate the freedom to read, draw attention to banned and challenged books, and highlight individuals persecuted for what they publish or read. The American week, through organizations such as American Library Association, highlight the first two. The International week, highlighted by Amnesty International, focuses on the third.
It should be noted the all sides of the political spectrum engage in challenging and banning books.
On that note, feel free to read the lists and read the titles that you desire:

If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.
United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
