Lewis Carroll’s 1865 classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was once banned in provinces in China for its portrayal of animals on the same intellectual level as humans. The Diary of Anne Frank, published in 1947, is banned in Lebanon for favorable portrayal of Jews. Beginning Sunday, Hastings College recognizes a week dedicated to anti-censorship in literature.
The 1990s was a decade of dominance by several teams at Hastings College. The Bronco baseball team finished the decade with six conference titles after a 15-year absence from the diamond.
