September 23-29, 2018: Banned Books Week
Banned Books Week is sponsored by the American Library Association and is held annually during the last week of September to celebrate the freedom of choice and the opportunity to express one's voice. Books that have been banned or censored are put on display in order to draw attention to the fact that all voices should be heard, even if they are from unpopular points of perspective.
Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.
Sr. Jane Hassett CSJ reads 2009 and 2010's most contested book by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell. Nearly ten years later, And Tango Makes Three still makes the top ten list.
