BANNED BOOKS WEEK has been held during the last week of September since 1982. Banned Books Week not only encourages readers to examine challenged literary works, but also promotes intellectual freedom in libraries, schools, and bookstores. Its goal is “to teach the importance of our First Amendment rights and the power of literature, and to draw attention to the danger that exists when restraints are imposed on the availability of information in a free society.”

Exercise your First Amendment rights and read a banned book – maybe you already have! In that case, read another one!!

Just a handful of previously banned and challenged books:

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD – Harper Lee

HARRY POTTER – J.K. Rowling

CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS – Dav Pilkey

THE HOLY BIBLE

THE GIVER – Lois Lowry

BLUBBER – Judy Blume

MY BROTHER, SAM, IS DEAD – James Lincoln Collier

JUNIE B. JONES – BARBARA PARK

FARENHEIT 451 – RAY BRADBURY

A WRINKLE IN TIME – Madeline L’Engle

GOOSEBUMPS – R.L. Stein

THE GREAT GILLY HOPKINS – Katherine Paterson
