This year Banned Books Week runs September 30th through October 6th. Celebrate your freedom to read by checking out a banned or challenged YA book during this next week! DPL has plenty of titles to choose from at each of its three locations. For more info on Banned Books Week, including listings of some of the most challenged or banned books of all time, check out the ALA website.
One of the best ways to celebrate this year might be to check out and read Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower and then go see it on the big screen opening night on October 5th. Don’t forget to read it first! In the meantime, enjoy the preview:
