Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week 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.

In honor of Banned Books Week, I’m joining in a giveaway of a book that has either been banned or challenged. To see a list of frequently banned books check out ALA’s website here. Below is a list of some of my favorite banned/challenged books which you can choose ONE book from if you win the giveaway!
