Aye, mateys . . . celebrate your freedom t’ read!
Treasure your freedom to read September 29 through October 6 by displaying Banned Books Week materials at your library or bookstore. This year’s materials feature the latest craze—Yarrr, Pirates! Featured below is the YA poster. In addition to the adult and children’s posters, we have bookmarks, T-shirts, the 2007 edition of the BBW Resource Guide, and more. Buy separately or buy in kits!
If pirates aren’t your thing, then don’t sweat it, mateys! There are other ways to support the freedom to read with classic pieces such as an I Read Banned Books button:
or an I Read Banned Books adult bracelet (shown) or adult-sized children’s bracelet:
How about an I Read Banned Books tote bag to help you carry all those banned and challenged books to read during Banned Books Week?
