Celebrate Banned Books Week this week by reading a great book like:
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain
Catcher in the Rye, by JD Salinger
His Dark Materials trilogy, by Philip Pullman
The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini
Any of the Harry Potter Books, by JK Rowling
In the Night Kitchen, by Maurice Sendak,
...or any other book on the banned book list.
Every year, during the last week of September, the American Library Association hosts events across the country celebrating free speech.
