Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment Banned Books Week and highlights the benefits of free and open access to information by drawing attention to the harms of censorship.
You can celebrate Banned Books Week by joining the Virtual Read-out! Everyone is invited to create a less than two minute video of themselves reading from their favorite banned or challenged book and upload it to a special Banned Books Week channel. Videos of challenged authors and other celebrities will be posted on the ALA’s YouTube and their Videos page. More information about the read-out is available here.
