Banned Books Week (September 26-October 2, 2021) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. Check out these infographics for some stunning visual data that contextualizes banned books and/or watch this video to learn about the top 10 most challenged books of 2020! Stay open-minded, curious, and yet always critical with your information resources!
