SEPTEMBER 28, 2010
Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week, September 25-October 2, 2010, is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment.  Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

Books such as Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby; Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men; Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises; and Jack London's The Call of the Wild are titles that have been banned or challenged.

Librarians, teachers, and booksellers across the country use Banned Books Week each year to teach the importance of our First Amendment Rights and the power of literature to draw attention to the danger that exists when restraints are imposed on the availability of information in a free society.
