Celebrate your freedom to read during “Banned Books Week” this week! It highlights the value of free and open access to information. 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. The books featured have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. Examples of banned/challenged classic books include: “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald, “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger,“The Grapes of Wrath” by John Steinbeck, and “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee.
