We hope you’ll enjoy this short video showing highlights from Banned Books Week 2010. The libraries, colleges, and other organizations featured were recipients of the first-ever Judith Krug Fund Banned Books Week grants, presented by the Freedom to Read Foundation in memory of Krug, who was FTRF’s executive director for four decades.
Applications for the 2011 Judith Krug Banned Books Week grants will open March 28. Banned Books Week 2011 will take place from September 24-October 1.
Many thanks to Benjamin Tobey of the University of Michigan’s School of Information, who compiled the video as part of his Alternative Spring Break project, and to all the libraries, schools, book stores, and other organizations who supported Banned Books Week!
