Banned Books Week

This week is Banned Books Week. Join us in celebrating the freedom of speech and the freedom to read, rights we are promised in the first amendment of the Constitution. During Banned Books Week, we celebrate our ability to access and to read books (and other information) from a variety of viewpoints. This week also seeks to praise intellectual freedom and deter censorship (ALA, 2009).

If you're interested in finding out which books received the most complaints, check out this Web site. Have you read any of these books? What did you think about them? Just food for thought...
