Banned Books Week is September 30-October 6. Celebrate by reading a banned book or attending an event. Project Censored, an official sponsor of Banned Books Week, is dedicating tomorrow’s radio show on KPFA to talking about the importance of the right to read.
On the next Project Censored Show on KPFA, Pacifica Radio, Join Mickey Huff with Peter Phillips as they showcase Banned Books Week, the Right to Read, and Freedom of Information and the Press.
