Every year for a week in September, The American Library Association (ALA) celebrates Banned Book Week. The week unites everyone in the reading world from librarians, and booksellers to publishers and teachers. Every year, hundreds of challenges are recorded against books for various reasons. The ALA believes all books have a right to be on the shelf and it should be an individual's right to determine whether or not the book is appropriate for them. It is amazing how many books have faced a challenge and the reasoning behind them. For more information check out this website from "The Office of Intellectual Freedom" a division of ALA.
