Banned and Challenged Books

"Banned Books Week 2018 is September 23-29. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restricted in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship." - http://www.ala.org/advocacy/bbooks/banned

Great American Read

     "THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an eight-part series that explores and
      celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100
      best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey)*.  It investigates how and
      why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by
      these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our
      diverse nation and our shared human experience.  

      The television series features entertaining and informative documentary
      segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable
      Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour
      launch episode in which the list of 100 books is revealed, five one-hour theme episodes that examine concepts common to groups of books on the list, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.  

The series is the centerpiece of an ambitious multi-platform digital, educational and community outreach campaign, designed to get the country reading and passionately talking about books.

*PBS does not endorse any titles on the top 100 list. For more information on how these titles were selected, please see our FAQs below." - Great American Reads website (https://www.pbs.org/the-great-american-read/about/show/)
