Banning Books & Silencing Stories

Tue, Sep 25th
2:00pm - 3:00pm

Banned Books Week 2018 is September 23-29. 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. The books featured during Banned Books Week have all been targeted with removal or restrictions in libraries and schools. By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship. 

Come join your librarians in a discussion about censorship and how banned books are still happening around our county today!
