This week is Banned Books Week, which celebrates freedom of reading and highlights attempts to censor books in school and libraries. In its 40th year, the event has united the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all kinds — in support of the right to find and express ideas, no matter how unorthodox.

Every book featured during Banned Books Week has been banned or restricted in libraries and schools. This week is all about exposing the harms of censorship by highlighting attempts across the country to remove or restrict books.
