Click on the photo to go to the official site.Banned Books Week is an annual campaign launched by the American Library Association to promote awareness about the existence of censorship and the continuing challenges to our freedom to read. Lots of bookstores have displays up with books that have been challenged- my local Barnes and Noble has an excellent series of displays with a variety of books and notes about why each one was challenged, and where and why.
This year's campaign runs from September 27 through October 4. During that time, I will be posting reviews of several banned books and polls and other fun stuff that I can dig up on the subject. Please come visit the blog during the week (and before and after, too!) and let me know if you have any suggestions or comments. And thanks to the folks at ALA for letting me use the graphic!
