Banned Books Week: Celebrate the Freedom to Read!

Submitted by kdeweese on September 29, 2010 - 5:02pm

Banned Books Week is a national celebration of the freedom to read, and it occurs every year in the last week of September.  During this week, we take the time to consider the harmful effects of censorship by taking a close look at books that have been banned or challenged across the country.  Also, we celebrate the fact that we (and our parents) are able to make our own decisions and choices about what is right for us to read.
