Banned Books Week

Since I am currently on a kick of events that are coming up, I decided I would go ahead and post about Banned Books Week (BBW), which occurs at the end of this month on September 29th through October 6th.

I hope to have time to participate in some of the activities on campus scheduled for that week by the campus library and other places, as well as bring some of those happenings here on my blog. I also hope to encourage everyone to check out the American Library Association website, which is a terrific resource on, not only for BBW, but also on policies of the government that are encroaching on our rights of freedom of speech and to read freely.

When that week comes along, I also intend to incorporate info that I have gathered from my British Literature class, which is taking a hard look at censorship in literature. I’ll keep you posted for my plans of that week. I will do as much as I can, considering my schedule, and I hope it will be more than enough and at least enjoyable, if not wonderfully informative.
