Banned Books Week 2004

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 5:33 pm


 read any banned books lately?  (Sept. 30, 2004)

see the ALA/BBW children‘s poster . . . bbw2004 


This is Banned Books Week, and a good time to be thankful for our freedom of expression and

vigilant in guarding that right.   Of course, our right to read or write a book is greater than our right

to have that book available at a public library. The American Library Association’s theme for BBW 2004

is Elect to Read a Banned Book.   Find out more about banned and challenged books here.

Since the weblog world loves lists, why not let us know how many of the most-challenged books

since 1990 you have read? [Only six for me.]   Here are the top twenty from 1990 – 2000 (the ALA

lists the top 100) and gives the reasons for the challenges.
