Book Banning is such an awful thing,... parents who want to care for their kids challenge books and then... they perhaps ar banned... Banned Book week is a great celebration... celebrate freedom of speech and press is what they want to say... and these parents who "care" for their kids i cant understand them... they let them watch tvtvtv and play violent videogames but books shall be difficult? weird ^^

Banned Books Week 2010 is September 25 - October 2. They even have a Facebook page! Boy, you want a good read, just download a list of banned & challenged books and use it as your guide! I saw this display at A Great Good Place for Books in Oakland, California, where I purchased a copy of The Chocolate War, a title I'm always seeing on lists on banned & challenged books.

Why I was at the Central Library for the first time. For Banned Books week, the CBLDF presented a talk about comics and censorship. And we learned (among many other interesting and fascinating things) why/how the CBLDF came to own the image rights of the Comics Code Authority seal. :

 

Yes. Our public library also has a really good comics selection. Not surprising given that we're the hometown of Comic-Con.
