#BannedBooksWeek ~ Sept. 25 to Oct. 1


Amnesty International and the American Library Association sponsor what I feel should be a Global Celebration. #bannedbooksweek 2016

Banned Books Week is, according to the ALA:

“…an annual event celebrating the freedom to read…it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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.”

You can see a list of the ten Most Challenged Books of 2015 on the Banned Books Week Coalition Site.

Time for a short video about Banned Books:
