...Banned Books Week is 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.
Here is a list of banned/frequently challenged classics. I am proud to say that a good many of them are on my book shelf. I think the best thing to do during Banned Books Week is read a banned book and share it with a friend.
