Banned Books Week --Sept 23-30th

It has always been a great American tradition to try and control the thoughts, bodies and readings of other citizens--totally unconstitutional, but a tradition nevertheless.
This is Banned Book Week. Here are some websites that give the history and current attempts to restrict our freedom to explore far and wide by entering into the fictional, and sometimes real, lives of others.
ALA Banned Books Page
ALA's Page on Censorship and Challenges
Google's Banned Books Page
The Online Books Page's Banned Books
Come to the University Library this week to participate in a drawing celebrating our Freedom to Read whatever we want. js
