Faculty: Celebrate Intellectual Freedom with Banned Books Week

Faculty – interested in discussing intellectual freedom and censorship with your students? Banned Books Week 2018 is September 23-29 with the theme “Banning Books Silences Stories.” Launched in 1982 in response to a surge in books being challenged in schools, bookstores, and libraries, Banned Books Week celebrates the “freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.”

For resources to share with your students, check out Banned Books Week’s list of Educator Resources, the American Library Association’s Top Ten Most Challenged Books lists, and Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books for 2000-2009.
