Banned Books Week, Sept. 20 - Oct. 2, 2012

Banned Books Week, now in its 30th year, is “an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. . . . By focusing on efforts across the country to remove or restrict access to books, Banned Books Week draws national attention to the harms of censorship" (American Library Association).
