Banned Books Week
Last week (September 26−October 3, 2009) was Banned Books Week, a special event celebrating the right to read, and by extension, to think. The true heroes behind the maintenance of the freedom to read in our free society are the librarians, teachers, and booksellers who protect books against the concept of banning. Pictured here is a poster created by the American Library Asociation, incorporatung inspiring words from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Want to celebrate Banned Books Week, even though it's a little late? Drop by your local library and pick up a book... and open your mind.
