Banned Books Week

Banned Books Week (September 26 - October 2, 2021) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
Head to the Office of Intellectual Freedom's website to see the list of 156 books that were banned or challenged in 2020:
