Banned Books Week is September 25- October 2, 2010, and the theme for this year’s celebration is “Think for Yourself, Read Banned Books.”
I love banned books. Drawing attention to a book by banning it or challenging it is the best way to drive my desire to read something. Some of my favorites have secured positions on the ALA’s list of the Top 100 Banned/Challenged books of 2000-2009. Out of the 100 listed, I have only been able to read 16 of the 100. What’s your number?
I challenge you to celebrate your freedom to read by picking up a banned book from Andersen Library.
