Banned Books Week is September 25 - October 2, 2010. This annual event, sponsored by a host of bookseller, library, and publishing organizations, celebrates the freedom to read and highlights the harms of censorship.
This year's slogan is "Think for yourself and let others do the same."
Like a number of other blogs, Redlines and Deadlines will celebrate Banned Books Week on Thursday, September 30, by asking people to post reviews of their favorite banned/challenged books. Post in Comments here, post on your own blog if you have one. Please participate with us.
You can find a list of the top 100 banned or challenged books of the last ten years on the American Library Association website:
If you've never looked at this list, you'll be stunned by what some people think you should not be allowed to read.
