This week is a very important week in the book community because it's Banned Books Week. Librians, educators, and book activists from all around the country and world spend the whole week teaching kids and adults about banned books, and the crazy reasons as to why they were banned or challenged in the first place.
It's one of my favorite events of the year because I love reading and learning about everyone's experiences with banned and challenged books. I also enjoy getting to read all the new articles and essays on banned books and the events that are being held around the world. But mostly, I love celebrating the fact that I read banned books, and that I will never stop reading banned books because every book is a book worth reading.
This week, I'll be sharing a few of my favorite banned and challenged books with my readers. I hope you've been enjoying this mini-series of posts about some of my favorite banned books, and getting to know a different side of me.
