Most of this banning was done by schools, libraries and school boards. The theory is kids do not have the same first amendment rights that adults do because they need to be protected from certain salacious material (Like the writings of Thomas Jefferson in Texas). That was also the reasoning of The Seduction of the Innocent etc. It’s an interesting area of law now because it’s all “balancing tests” which make for inherently mystifying and hard to apply case law. Lots of age consideration and community standards. So, yeah we have a law but it’s not without exceptions particularly where kids are concerned. I’m actually having a hard time coming up with a book that was outright banned by the US Government across the board (The Pentagon Papers but that wasn’t technically a book). Maybe Henry Miller counts since his works were nabbed by customs inspectors…
