Banned Books Week

We are celebrating Banned Books Week to emphasize our freedom to choose and the freedom to express opinions even if those opinions are unpopular. Observed since 1982, this annual event reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.

We invite you to take our Banned Books quiz. Test your knowledge of banned books and see how you score. You just may impress yourself and your friends. Good luck and good reading. Now take the quiz.
