2023 Banned Books Week
Saturday, October 7, 2023 8:04 PM
Banned Books Week ends today. Its focus is to celebrate the freedom to read. While there are some books that are definitely not appropriate for younger readers, too often a book is "banned" because of what someone thinks or hears is in the book. More often, books like "The Diary of A Young Girl" by Anne Frank or "Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain are banned for spurious reasons.
Take time this month to look at the list of banned books and find one you should buy and read—or introduce to a friend.
