Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read
September 27–October 4, 2008
KDL invites you to celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week. This event is observed each year during the last week of September and celebrated nation-wide . Since 1982, Banned Books Week reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.
Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read as well as the freedom to express one’s opinion even though that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular. From J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain, the list of banned books is quite impressive. Even more impressive, however, is the conviction of those that choose to stand up for our freedom to read and never take that freedom for granted.
