banned books week

Banned books week is the nation-wide celebration of our privilege and freedom to read. It was started in the early 80’s in response to an overwhelming barrage of bans and challenges against certain books in schools and libraries. Challenges in every corner of the country, transcending racial and economic boundaries.

I think the banned books week manifesto best sums up the mission.
