I’m not sure exactly when Banned Books Week takes place, but I know it’s in September.
Bookstores, libraries, and other organizations celebrate banned books each year to highlight books that were once (or currently are) challenged. And DC public libraries are doing something fun this year. Throughout the course of the month the public library system in the capitol is hiding hundreds of copies of banned books all around the city. Clues to help find the books will be given on the system’s social media accounts and the books will feature covers describing why the book was challenged.
Also, the books are free to keep!
I don’t know what any libraries or bookstores near me are doing, but if I lived in DC I’d definitely be trying to find me some banned books. Never mind that I likely don’t know the city well enough to find anything.
Have you heard of any unique events to celebrate Banned Books Week in your area?

We celebrate band book week at my school. I am a teacher.
Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was his featured blogger too.

I have no idea who Danny Ray is or what you’re talking about.
