Banned Books Week starts on September 24th, 2011. There will be a Virtual Banned Books Read-Out on YouTube, among many other sponsored events, throughout the week:
Since the inception of Banned Books Week in 1982, libraries and bookstores throughout the country have staged local read-outs as part of their activities. This year, for the first time, readers from around the world will be able to participate virtually in Banned Books Week, Sept. 24 – Oct.1. During this year’s celebration of Banned Books Week, readers will be able to proclaim the virtues of their favorite banned books by posting videos of themselves reading excerpts to a dedicated YouTube channel.
Check out their website to learn all about the week and check out who’s participating!
