BOOKMAN’S Bookstore does Banned Books Week - Virtual Read Out 2012
Did you know that next week is Banned Books Week? It’s the 30th anniversary and it’s a great opportunity to celebrate your freedom to read ANYTHING & EVERYTHING.
Even if you don’t want to be caught reading you should check out some of the most frequently banned or challenged books (in the US) - and keep in mind that these are only the top 10 lists for the last few years. Censorship is still a problem, sadly.
For more information on Banned Books Week, book challenges, and organizations that help to fight censorship check out the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, the Freedom to Read Foundation - or ask your librarian!
