Banned Books Week, held September 25-October 1, 2016 has officially ended. However, the freedom to read continues. The freedom to read is about choices to read a variety of books on a variety of subjects. Books that can expand your mind, broaden your perspective, increase understanding, and bring awareness to a multiplicity and complexity of issues.
This year’s Banned Books Week focused on young adult literature, and books with diverse content. These books are often challenged and/or banned in school classrooms and libraries.
