Banned Books Week (September 26 to October 1) is coming up! This is the perfect time to remind your community of your role as an Intellectual Freedom Fighter. To help you get ready there is a bunch of information on the Banned Books Week Website including instructions for participating in the Virtual Read-Out.
Speaking of fantastic banned/challenged books, my current favorite is Maurice Sendak’s In The Night Kitchen. I love to read this aloud to my 2-year-old who thinks that Mickey is the funniest kid in the world. Just think, without librarians like you protecting his right to read, he wouldn’t even know who Mickey is. What is YOUR favorite banned/challenged book?
