How Booksellers Can Fight Censorship During Banned Books Week

The American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression wants to help booksellers stop book banning. The organization has a new set of tools to help booksellers participate in the “Internet read-out” that is happening during Banned Books Week (Sept. 24-Oct. 1).

Essentially during Internet read-out week, readers, booksellers, librarians and book fans alike will be encouraged to promote the reading of banned books through events and social networking. The ABFFE has a list of what booksellers can do to participate on their site. This includes creating in-store displays, making YouTube videos and selling t-shirts.

Think that book banning is a thing of the past? Think again. School boards have recently decided to cut a Sir Arthur Conan Doyle book and a Haruki Murakami book from school reading lists.
