Banned Books Week Sept 26- Oct 2

Launched in 1982, Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community and is held each year during the last week of September. Today, Banned Books Week coverage by mainstream media reaches an estimated 2.8 billion readers.

The theme of this year’s event is “Books Unite Us, Censorship Divides Us.” This year’s motif is a pair of hands sharing a book, superimposed on a globe. The 2021 theme is intended to be inclusive, emphasizing the ways in which books and information bring people together, help individuals see themselves in the stories of others, and aid the development of empathy and understanding for people from other backgrounds.

Wondering about what books were banned in 2020? https://youtu.be/8DbrJiaYFbM
