Celebrate Banned Books Week, Sept. 29 - Oct. 6

2007 Banned Books Week: Ahoy! Treasure Your Freedom to Read and Get Hooked on a Banned Book

"Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read is observed during the last week of September each year. Observed since 1982, this annual ALA event reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted. This year, 2007, marks BBW's 26th anniversary (September 29 through October 6). BBW celebrates the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one’s opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them."

Check out the ALA Banned Books Week website by clicking on the button above or going to http://www.ala.org/ala/oif/bannedbooksweek/bannedbooksweek.htm. There's lots of good information there on why books are challenged or banned, lists of banned books, and what readers can do to fight back. You can also order posters, shirts, buttons, etc. that let the world know you support banned and challenged books. You should also check out http://blogs.ala.org/oif.php?title=celebrate2007bbw&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1 for more information on what you can do to celebrate Banned Books Week.
