It is that time of year again! Banned Books Week started September 27th and goes through October 3rd. From www.ala.org: Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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. Come see our display of banned books and take one home to see what the fuss is all about.
Even Sam is celebrating Banned Books Week with re-reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
