Banned Book Week is an annual week long awareness campaign brought to use by the American Library Association and Amnesty International. The idea is to focus on our freedom to read, and bring awareness to censored and banned books, as well as persecuted individuals. The list of banned books is quite long, and there are many titles on there that truly shocked me. I mean. Captain Underpants?! The Giver? Harry Potter??
Sept. 24 through Sept. 30 is the chosen week for 2017. We are reading The Giver in honor of this special week for books across the globe. What are you reading??
