– Banned Books Week is September 21-27, 2014 –
In honor of the upcoming Banned Books week, I encourage you to check out one of my earlier posts about banned and challenged books here. You can also visit the American Library Association’s website to learn more about Banned Books Week and to find lists of frequently banned and challenged books. You could also read my post about one of this year’s most frequently challenged books, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, by clicking on this link. Another great way to celebrate the week is to pick up a banned or challenged book at your local library. You’d be surprised at how many of your favorite books have stirred up controversy! Celebrate your freedom to read!
