Banned Book Week

Incidental Comics by Grant Snider
It is the last day of Banned Book Week. It is an annual event, highlighting open and free access of information. We have the right to express and inform ourselves of the ideas we deem important. The books featured during Banned Book Week are works of literature that has been targeted with countless of restrictions or removal from public access.

And let's be honest. If someone told you not to read something, that just increases your desire to read said thing. Here are a few books I've read from the list:
Harry Potter series- J.K. Rowling
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
And Tango Makes Three - Justin Richardson and Peter ParnellThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman AlexieThe Catcher in the Rye by J.D. SalingerMontana 1948 by Larry Watson
It may be the end of Banned Book Week but I know readers will continue fighting against censorship and the freedom to read.
