Banned Books Week is the national celebration of the freedom to read! Launched in 1982 to draw attention to the problem of book censorship in the United States, Banned Books Week is held during the last week of September. This year, Banned Books Week will be held September 21 - 27, and it will celebrate the freedom to read comics and graphic novels!
The Banned Books Week coalition presents a Google+ Hangout on Air featuring Cory Doctorow, author of the novel Little Brother, discussing the importance of fighting censorship and the value of Banned Books Week. To view more Banned Books Week related videos, click here.
