Banned Books Week

My librarian daughter, Rita, tells me that September 26th through October 3rd is Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read.

It is sponsored by the American Library Association each year and celebrates the importance of the First Amendment, intellectual freedom to access information and express ideas. It is backed by many, and endorsed by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.

So by all means - Read a book this week!

I didn't know about Banned Books Week. I haven't seen anything about it at our library, which I am at often. Maybe I missed it....
