Come read from your favorite banned book, and celebrate the freedom to read!

Brought to you by:

According to BannedBooksWeek.org, "Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982 according to the American Library Association. There were 311 challenges reported to the Office of Intellectual Freedom in 2014, and many more go unreported. "
