The Handmaid’s Tale? Harry Potter? The Colour Purple? What’s your favourite banned book?
Banned Books Week UK 23-29 September 2018
Banned Books Week was initiated by the American Library Association in 1982 in response to an increasing number of challenges in the US to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. For the third year running in the UK we are holding events and activities on the topics of Banned Books, Censorship and the Freedom to Read, made possible by the partnership between Index on Censorship, The British Library, English PEN, Free Word Centre, Islington Library and Heritage Services, Media Diversified, The Publishers Association, the Royal Society of Literature, The Society of Chief Librarians and Spread the Word in association with the ALA.
