There were over 300 challenges to books in schools and libraries around the country last year alone. Banned Books week alerts the public that censorship is still a problem, even in the United States. This year’s focus is on books written for young adults as they make up the majority of the titles banned or challenged each year. Have you read GLASS CASTLE? HARRY POTTER? CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS? Then stop by and get your fREADom bookmark, add your name to our display and join the ranks of those who can proudly say “I read banned books!”
