It's Freedom to Read week again, and if you're thinking, "so what, I can read whenever I want, I don't need to have a week about it" think again!
Freedom to read week is an annual event which challenges us to think about intellectual freedom in our society. Even in a nation such as Canada books and magazines are pulled from shelves, removed from classrooms, banned or otherwise challenged almost every day. Whether it's The Anarchist's Cookbook or Judy Bloom's Are you there, God? It's Me Margaret, Freedom to Read Week encourages us to take a closer look at the reasons books are banned.
