This week marks the 30th anniversary of Banned Books Week. Open Road Media created the following two-minute video featuring their authors whose works have been banned, or writers who found inspiration in a banned book. Open Road Media also created a Open Road Media Banned Books Week website complete with an interactive calendar where you can view the story behind some of the books that have been banned.
To learn more, visit the official Banned Books Week website from the American Library Association (ALA). This year’s theme is “Celebrating the Freedom to Read.”
