September 24 — October 1, 2011 is the thirtieth annual observance of Banned Books Week. The freedom to read what we will is firmly rooted in the First Amendment, yet many who rant about upholding the Constitution would restrict our access to written art, enlightenment, and information. Celebrate liberty and literacy — read a banned book today.
