Banned Books Week 2009

Yep, it’s Banned Books Week! I took a look at this year’s list of challenged books, classics anyway since I seem to going through many on my shelves these days, and one of my all time favorites is once again on the list — To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Maybe I should pull that one off the shelf for a glance in the next few days.

Any of your favorites on the list?

Happy reading!  Thanks to the American Library Association (ALA) for the lovely artwork below.  The ALA website is a great resource for everything Banned Books if you’re interested.

I’ve gone in the past and enjoyed it. Right now, I don’t see any authors on the list that I’m really looking forward to seeing/hearing but if I have the time, I plan on stopping by.

If you want more information, you can find it on the Library of Congress’s website.
