September 22-28, 2019 is Banned Books Week. The 2019 theme is "Censorship Leaves us in the Dark: Leave the Light On!" Censorship succeeds when no one talks. Each year libraries across the country observe Banned Books Week. This annual event is sponsored by the American Library Association. Check out their page at ala.org/bbooks.
