Banned Book Week

This past week has been a very interesting week. It has been banned book week in the US of A.

The 2015 celebration will be held September 27-October 3. Banned Books Week is an annual celebration of a freedom to read. Hundreds of libraries, bookstores and some school around America draw attention to the problem of censorship by hosting a variety of events and making displays of challenged books.
