Each September, the American Library Association and several other organizations celebrate Banned Books Week. In addition, we provide you with a list of the Top Challenged Books for the year. Take a look at the list; there are both old and new favorites.
But for Banned Books Week 2007, we want to try something different. Using two diametrically opposite publications (each with relatively known flaws), we want to challenge you to think about your freedom to read and what it REALLY means! As the writer and activist, Noam Chomsky, once said “If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.”
- Political Finger Pointing
- Hot or Not? The Global Warming Debate
- Blowing in the Wind…but in which direction?
- Holocaust Denied?
- Supposition and Self-Censorship
Would you read or watch the one to which you are totally opposed? Why or why not? We want to read YOUR comments!
