Happy Banned Book Week

School is back in session and hopefully that means more kids are cracking open a book or two.  They may even be reading a book that has been banned or challenged in the past.

Did you know that this week is officially Banned Book Week? Yes, groups across the United States will be celebrating the written word this week by bringing attention to banned or censored books. Many schools and libraries have planned special events to condemn censorship.
Santa Margarita Catholic High School in Southern California will wrap banned books in yellow-and-black caution tape and encourage students to review the books for gift cards and candy.

Feel free to share your favorite banned or challenged book in the comment section. I am personally partial the Harry Potter series.
