22 - 28 September 2013 is Banned Books Week
What is Banned Books Week?
Banned Books Week is the book community’s annual celebration of the freedom to read. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, book stores and libraries. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982.
