Banned Books Week 2016: Celebrating the Freedom to Read


Throughout history, countless publications have faced censorship and banning in many countries around the world for a variety of reasons, be they religious, political, or just plain ridiculous. 

As this week is Banned Books Week, I wanted to take a minute to talk about banned books and celebrate the freedom to read.
