Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read September 29, 2010

Posted by Donna in Thoughtful Ramblings.

I wanted to share this interesting link for Banned Books Week :

Book Bans and Challenges, 2007-2010

Taken from the actual cases that have been documented by the American Library Association and the Kids’ Right to Read Project, this Google Map represents the places in the United States where books have been banned or challenged since 2007. ALA documented 460 challenges in 2009 but believes that this number is only 20-25% of the actual challenges or bans that did occur. Many of these challenges are never officially reported and documented.

Happy Reading and Happy to be celebrating our Freedom to Read! ~Donna
