Challenged Classics - Banned Books Week - LibGuides at Ashland UniversityHappy Banned Books Week ! Keep the lights on by adding some of the titles below to your reading list! Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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. Each year, the American Library Association releases a list of the top banned and challenged books in schools and libraries. Limiting the stories readers can access limits their ability see themselves represented, building negative messages about the value of their own personal stories.
