BANNED BOOKS WEEK 2002
In celebration of Banned Books Week 2002 -- Sept. 21-28 --
ALA is encouraging libraries to participate in a nation-
wide event that will highlight the importance of free
speech and free expression. Join ALA and host a "Read-out!"
-- a continuous reading of books banned and challenged.
Take this opportunity to share and celebrate the importance
of Banned Books Week with your community. Invite community
leaders, local celebrities, members of your staff, and
rary users to participate as a reader in your Let
Freedom Read event. Promote your event to local media, and
share your plans with the ALA Office for Intellectual
Freedom at firstname.lastname@example.org!
ALA will provide a list of frequently challenged classics,
in addition to our Most Frequently Challenged Books lists.
Talking points and press materials also will be made
