Celebrate Banned Books Week
Sponsored by several leading arts, educational and trade associations, Banned Books Week (September 26-October 3, 2009) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, the 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.
