You could try this web-site:

"Banned BooksOnline".  University of Pennsylvania.   <<A 

This website is dedicated to bringing information about books that have been
censored.  It includes a section on: "Books Suppressed or Censored by Legal
Authorities" as well as a section called: "Unfit for Schools or Minors?" Various
books are discussed, examples of how they were challenged given, and the
outcome of the challenges reported.  Challenged book titles are linked to
e-versions, so it is easy to peruse the book or article under review.
