September 24−October 1 is Banned Books Week, an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. (from ALA Banned Books Week)
Some have found that when you ban a book, people become more interested in it. So, we all should be sure not to read these books! Books Banned or Challenged, 2010-2011.
