Books unite us.
Sharing stories important to us means sharing a part of ourselves. Books reach across boundaries and build connections between readers. Censorship, on the other hand, divides us and creates barriers.
Launched in 1982, Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community and is held each year during the last week of September. The theme of this year’s event is “Books Unite Us, Censorship Divides Us," emphasizing the ways in which books and information bring people together, help individuals see themselves in the stories of others, and aid the development of empathy and understanding for people from other backgrounds.
Come in during Banned Books Week and browse our special table display of Banned Books. Or, shop the Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2020 list below (per the American Library Association's Office for Intellectual Freedom). Either way, any regular-priced books will be 10% off.
