Interested in reading all those banned books!!! Or would like to explore some of the best novels of the 20th century which have been challenged or banned. Fortunately, the American Library Association
and many other organizations are fighting back with Banned Books Week
, taking place this year Sept. 23-30.
For 25 years, libraries and bookstores nationwide have been celebrating the freedom to read during Banned Books Week, which is sponsored by the American Booksellers Association
, the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression
, the Association of American Publishers, the American Society of Journalists and Authors
, the National Association of College Stores
, and endorsed by the Library of Congress Center for the Book
you can use Google Book Search
to explore some of the best novels of the 20th century which have been challenged or banned. And while libraries and bookstores around the country celebrate the 25th anniversary of Banned Books Week with special readings, displays, and more, you just might end up with a visit to your local library or bookstore and an old favorite or a new banned book in hand.
