Ellen Hopkins for the Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out!
It’s day two of Banned Books Week! We hope you’ve been able to pick up your favorite banned book from your local public library or bookstore and enjoy reading it. If you are still looking for ideas, check out our frequently challenged books page for more information.
This year’s theme focuses on young adult literature as it is the frequent target of censorship. So we are kicking off the week with a reading from the bestselling banned young adult author, Ellen Hopkins. Hopkins is the author of frequently challenged titles such as Crank and Perfect.
We also hope you will be able to join us for other events, including a webinar on Tuesday, How to protect the Freedom to Read in Your Library, sponsored by SAGE and the Office for Intellectual Freedom. Sign up today.
