Banned Books Week 2010

Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the impact of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.

Find more information and ideas on how to celebrate the freedom to read here, here, here, and here.

The Banned Books Week site has a cool map showing where censorship is occurring.

The National Book Festival at the Library of Congress is another venue for information.
