Ready! Set! Read Banned Books!

“30 years of liberating literature” is this year’s Banned Books Week theme.  It’s held next week, September 30 – October 6.   See our post explaining moreHere’s the history of this celebration in a slide show.

Decide how you’d like to celebrate your freedom to read… write… speak… express…. and learn what you choose.   The best way, of course, is to read a banned book!  Here’s a list.  Also, our October book display in the library will feature banned books, so you can find a steady supply there.

And if you’d like to express yourself further, grab a partner (we suggest a tech-saavy teenager) and make a video!  Send it to the Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out page.

Here’s a calendar of events for next week.

What’s your favorite banned book?
