Celebrating the Freedom to Read

September 26 through October 3 is Banned Books Week. Occurring the last September of each year, Banned Books Week is "celebrated" by hundreds of libraries and bookstores across the country in an attempt to draw attention to the problem of censorship. Sadly, many important YA and MG titles often find themselves on the list of most challenged books.

This week, some of us will share anecdotes and opinions about some of our favorite frequently challenged books. We hope you'll share yours as well.
