Banned Books Week

It’s Banned Books Week, and the American Library Association wants you to celebrate by reading something that would piss off your Sunday school teacher. Course that’s not exactly how they put it:

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. 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 harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.
