September 24th through October 1st is Banned Books Week! Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.
Banned Books Week is sponsored by the American Library Association; American Booksellers Association; American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression; American Society of Journalists and Authors; Association of American Publishers; and the National Association of College Stores.
To celebrate Banned Books Week, read a banned or challenged book, learn more about censorship, or come to the CFCC Wilmington Campus Library and add your favorite banned book title to The Wall.
To learn more about Banned Books Week, you can go to the American Library Association website:
