Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 to highlight 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. Banned Book Week is September 26-October 2, 2021. Click on the title to put one of these 12 banned books on hold.
