Banned Books Week, Celebrating the Freedom to Read:

September 25-October 1 2016. Have you read a Banned Book? Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read is observed during the last week of September each year. Observed since 1982, this annual American Library Association event reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.  BBW celebrates the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one’s opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them. Check out the frequently challenged books section to explore the issues and controversies around book challenges and book banning.

Is there something in particular you like? A book, an author, a genre (science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror)? We are always looking for suggestions for new titles to add to our collection here, so please let us know what your favorites are.
