Banned Books Week

      "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."
