Banned Books Week is September 27 through October 4
- Monday, September 29, 2008
The SCBWI is joining with Random House to celebrate the freedom to read and help increase awareness of censorship issues. Click here to visit the First Amendment Web site that Randhom House has set up: http://www.randomhouse.com/banned/
SCBWI encourages you to check out this newly updated First Amendment site — it's full of valuable information for eveyone involved in the children's publishing community, and features some thoughtufl points about censorship from various authors.
We’re hoping everyone will make this year's Banned Books Week a time to celebrate the freedom to read — and to remember and remind others never to take that freedom for granted.
