Banned Books Week

As you may not know, September 26th to October 3rd is Banned Books Week, a nation-wide event that encourages people to read books that have been banned or challenged.

What sort of books have been banned or challenged? Some are easy to guess, like Snow Falling On Cedars, but others are stranger, like Where's Waldo? and Harriet the Spy. There's also Harry Potter, Fahrenheit 451, and pretty much anything dealing with homosexuality.

The Golda Meir Library at UWM currently has a display up on the third floor of the East Wing of banned books. They also have information on book bannings and the week-long event. Stop by and express your First Amendment rights by picking up an (almost) banned book!
