Reading is a potent ability and a power that is often sought to be restricted. Reading expands our minds, gives us new ideas, and and helps us learn about others; books allow authors to share their voices with us, even from across time and place. Use your magical, powerful ability to read by reading all the things others might not want you to, by checking out frequently banned and challenged books. Be a rebel, start a revolution, just turn the page!
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It 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.
