The guide is intended to inform you about Banned Books Week.

Banned Books Week 2020

Banned Books Week 2020 is September 27 - October 3. 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.

For more information, free downloads, and opportunities to be involved, check out the amazing information pages provided by the American Library Association (ALA).
