Banned Books Week is Sept. 25 - Oct. 2, 2010

From http://bannedbooksweek.org/info.html
"Banned Books Week is the only national celebration of the freedom to read. It was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than a thousand books have been challenged since 1982. The challenges have occurred in every state and in hundreds of communities. Click here to see a map of book bans and challenges in the US from 2007 to 2009. People challenge books that they say are too sexual or too violent. They object to profanity and slang, and they protest against offensive portrayals of racial or religious groups--or positive portrayals of homosexuals. Their targets range from books that explore contemporary issues and controversies to classic and beloved works of American literature."

So, don't ban a book--read a banned book! You may be surprised to find one of your favorite books on the list! 



Mrs. Hobratschk created a Banned Books Week display in the library.  Come by and check it out!

Banned Books Week (no, don't ban a book--read a banned book!)
