Banned Books Week 2014

It’s that time of year again: Banned Books Week!  BBW, spearheaded by the American Library Association, is an annual celebration of freedom to read.  Every year — yes, even in 2014 — libraries and schools around the country receive dozens of challenges.  In 2012, 462 challenges were reported, and the ALA estimates that more than 70% of challenges aren’t reported.

In recognition of your freedom to read (and listen), I want to highlight some things to read/listen to/watch to get in the spirit of BBW.  Let me know what you think, and feel free to share more ideas in the comments!
