Most Frequently Challenged Books of 2012-2013
From September 22 to September 28, 2013, the Marshall University Libraries will be observing Banned Book Week with a display in the Drinko Library and an updated website. The theme this year is Free Your Mind Read a Banned Book. Visit the website or stop by the display near the IT Service Desk in Drinko to see what has been challenged or banned over the past year. Contact Ron Titus at 696-6575 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Banned Books Week (BBW) celebrates the freedom to choose and the freedom to express one's opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular, stressing the importance of ensuring the availability of those viewpoints to all who wish to read them. It is sponsored by the American Booksellers Association, the American Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression, the American Library Association (ALA), the Association of American Publishers, the American Society of Journalists and Authors and the National Association of College Stores. It is endorsed by the Library of Congress' Center for the Book.
