Celebrate the Freedom to Read: Banned Books Week

September 28, 2016

Observe Banned Books Week this week, September 25 – October 1.  Banned Books Week draws attention to attempts at censorship by restricting access to books across the country.  Sponsors for the week include the American Library Association, the American Booksellers Association, the Association of American Publishers and the Authors Guild.

Check out the list of 2015’s top ten most frequently challenged books.  You may be surprised what’s on the list!  The list is maintained by ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom.
