Banned Books Week


Complete Calendar of Events

 


Banned Books Week September 30-October 6 is the annual celebration of the freedom to read. Libraries and bookstores around the country draw attention to the problem of censorship by mounting displays of challenged books and hosting a variety of events. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982.
Some of the 10 most challenged titles of 2011 were The Hunger Games trilogy, by Suzanne Collins, My Mom's Having A Baby! A Kid's Month-by-Month Guide to Pregnancy, by Dori Hillestad Butler, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie, and To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. Come check out our display of challenged books!
