September 26 - October 1, 2011 is Banned Books Week
Why should you care?
Have you read the Harry Potter books? How about Crank by Ellen Hopkins,The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, or Twilight by Stephenie Meyer?
These are just a few books that are on the "frequently challenged" list for having content that some people think is inappropriate for teens to read. If it wasn't for librarians, teachers, parents, and teens speaking out and fighting this attempted censorship you may not be allowed to read these books. Can you even imagine that?!?
So celebrate your First Amendment rights & read a banned book - not just this week but as often as possible.
Joins us this Wednesday, September 28, at 4 PM for the In BeT(w)een Book Club. We'll be discussing The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier, a frequently challenged book, & sampling chocolate!
