This Week Is Banned Books Week

From The New York Times' Paper Cuts Blog:
In case you didn’t know, this week, Sept. 27-Oct. 4, is Banned Books Week, and libraries around the country are celebrating — if that’s the right word — with exhibits, readings and other special events. You can learn all about it at the Banned Books web site of the American Library Association’s Office of Intellectual Freedom: www.ala.org/books.
