Stand Up for Your Right to Read


September 25-October 1, 2016, is Banned Books Week and the MA Library wants you to stand up for your right to read!

Rebellions, protests, and challenging authority are fundamental aspects of American democracy, but sometimes one group exercises their First Amendment rights in ways that conflicts with another group’s rights. Which brings us to Banned Books Week. Although the MA community has never formally banned a book, you will likely encounter this situation eventually.

This week we’ll be highlighting banned or challenged books and comics, and offering a list of resources and additional reading materials. The books and comics on the upcoming lists are all challenging challenged reads, but are most certainly worth reading.

Check back later this week for special posts on some of the most frequently challenged and banned books and comics.
