Banned Books Week

Posted Sat, 09/22/18

According to the American Library Association (ALA) via their website Banned & Challenged Books:

Banned Books Week (Sept. 23-29, 2018) brings together the entire book community - librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types - in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restricted in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship.
