Banned Books Week 2014

The American Library Association (ALA), with the national Banned Books Week planning committee, announced on Wednesday that this year’s Banned Books Week’s theme will focus on comics and graphic novels. Banned Book’s Week is a celebration of the right to read and intellectual freedom. Comics and graphic novels have often been a target of censorship even in recent years. In fact, the Bones series by Jeff Smith was in the top 10 for most frequently challenged books of 2013.  The week long celebration runs this year from September 21-September 27.
