How have you been celebrating Banned Book Week? From September 26, 2021, to October 2, 2021, Banned Book Week investigates current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. This is a week where book lovers everywhere join together to celebrate freedom of ideas, freedom of expression, and our freedom to seek information.
