Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read

September 24−October 1, 2011

Banned Books Week (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. 

Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States. From the American Library Association's website. 

The Armenian Poetry Project believes that adults should decide what they wish to read. Their neighbors or governments should not make that decision.

Support freedom of thought and education. 

Support literacy. 
Support freedom and peace.
