Banned Books Week: September 21st to September 27th

Banned Books Week is here. It is not about the books banned themselves, although they are worth reading just like any other book is because we should value the privilege and our right to do so.  This week is about intellectual freedom more than it is about a particular book. Judith Krug pioneered BBW in 1982 with the goal "to teach the importance of our First Amendment rights and the power of literature, and to draw attention to the danger that exists when restraints are imposed on the availability of information in a free society.” and we all should stand by that whether you enjoy reading books or not.
