Banned Books Week – Celebrate Your Freedom to Read

The American Library Association’s Banned Books Week starts in the U.S. this Saturday, September 27th and runs through Saturday, October 4th.

I have been working on a new Banned Books Library on LibraryThing.  Check it out if you would like to see list of many of the books challenged, banned, and censored throughout the world.  You can browse the actual library to see what books you might have that have been banned.  The American Library Association also has a list of frequently challenged books.

So go on, celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week by reading a book that has been banned or challenged.  I’m planning on rereading Lois Lowry’s “The Giver.’  What banned book are you going to read?

Found around the web, some Banned Books Week posters for your viewing enjoyment:
