Banned Books Week runs 9/30/12 to 10/6/12 and since this blog is all about the book it sure had to get a mention.
This is the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week. It seems with each passing year the awareness and celebration gets a little bigger, now if only it would end the banning of books altogether.
As an avid reader I am not in favor of banning any book. I view controversial books as an opportunity for open ended discussions, not outright banishment.
