October 1 marks the end of Banned Books Week. Do you have some favorite banned books? Though I have many favorite books, I often use dictionaries, and The Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary was in Robert P. Doyle’s Books Challenged or Banned in 2009-2010, a list compiled from reports in the American Library Association’s Intellectual Freedom Newsletter . Click here for the 2010-2011 list.
The ALA also has a Banned Books Week Press Kit with a Virtual Read-Out. Of course the ALA is not the only organization involved with Banned Books Week. Other sponsoring organizations are listed on the Banned Books Week website.
