BBW09Celebrate your freedom to read this week!  Visit the official Banned Books Week website and the ALA website to learn more about banned & challenged books.

Check out the map to see where books have been challegned and banned during the past couple of years. Do you know of a book challenge that hasn’t been included on the map?  Tell us about it!

Also, be sure to read the poem “Manifesto” by Ellen Hopkins. You may have read her work before, she’s written several popular books including Crank & Glass, both of which were recently challenged at a school library in Norman, OK.
