Banned Book’s Week.

Not being content with having Sarcastic Month, October also claims Banned Book’s Week.  This week celebrates the freedom to read, and the importance of open access to information.  It is a week that allows literary communities, including, libraries, schools, publishers, writers, and readers, to stand together and show support for the chance to freely express and seek ideas, even if that idea runs contrary to popular belief, or challenges the status quo.

The list of banned and challenged young adult books is quite extensive.  Take a look at this list.  Is your favourite book listed on there?  Why not let us know what it is by posting a comment on our blog or facebook page.

So declare your freedom to read by checking out a banned book at your St. Louis Public Library.
