Banned Books Week 2012: 30 Years of Liberating Literature

From September 30 through October 6, we observe Banned Books Week: Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Freedom to Read!

The Library is sponsoring a display of titles that have been challenged in schools, public libraries, academic libraries, and communities. We are also posting daily information about banned books on our Facebook and Twitter pages, with quiz questions featuring passages from challenged titles.

This year, we also have a contest for you to enter. Answer all ten questions correctly in the following survey, and your name will be entered in a drawing to be held on October 7. The winner receives a Kaladi Brothers Coffee card along with American Library Association Banned Books Week merchandise! (The contest is open to all UAA and APU students, faculty, and staff – with the exception of Library employees.)

Take the Banned Books Week Quiz!

Take a look at the following websites to learn more about Banned Books Week, and to see if one of your favorite titles is there!
