This week (September 26 – October 3) is Banned Books Week, an annual event each fall where we celebrate the right to read. It is a great time to pick up a good book, and just enjoy your right to read it. You can read more about the week at the following sites.
- Banned Books Week

In the hopes of helping each other find good titles, I thought we could share some of our favorite banned books or authors with each other. I will start us off. One of my favorite banned books of all time is Fahrenheit 451, which I am currently re-reading in graphic novel form. A favorite author of mine, who regularly finds his books facing challenges across the country, is Chris Crutcher.
What are your favorites?
