Banned Books


Banned Books

Banned Books Week is a national celebration of the freedom to read, observed in 2014 from September 21 to September 27.

The practice of banning books is not a thing of the past. Take a look at our Banned Books aisle to see which titles have been frequently banned and challenged over the last two decades. You might be surprised by what new books — and beloved classics — have recently faced censorship.

For more, see our list of 33 Must-Read Books to Celebrate Banned Books Week.
