Defend Your Freedom To Read

bannedbooks-615x341

Held during the last week of September each year, Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read and raises awareness about the ongoing threats of censorship in the United States. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community—readers, authors, editors, librarians, teachers, journalists, publishers, and booksellers—to protect the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. You can participate by visiting your local library, bookshop or school to take part in BBW activities. And, of course, you can read banned books.
