Welcome to Banned Books Week—Sept. 27 to Oct. 4, 2008.
This is the 27th anniversary of Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read, an annual American Library Association event held during the last week of September to remind Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.
Banned Books Week, endorsed by the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, is sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, American Library Association, American Society of Journalists and Authors, Association of American Publishers, and the National Association of College Stores.
