Banned Books Week 2022

Banned books week is September 18 - 24, 2022. It's incredibly sad that books are still being banned in the 21st century and sadder still that far-right politicians, media, and religious leaders continue to successfully dictate their belief systems in this manner. The best way to fight back is to buy and read banned books, to talk about this growing attack on the First Amendment, and to not allow school systems and religious organizations to influence their disregard towards multiculturism and race in the classroom by using your voice where it can be heard: VOTE! The following is a list of some - not all - banned books, that you can find at Literati or order from our website.
