LSU Libraries Online Banned Books Exhibit

Banned Books Week Announces Comics Focus.

This year, Banned Books Week will shine light on banned and challenged comic books and graphic novels. Read the article from the Library Journal online.

LSU Libraries will commemorate Banned Books Week with an exhibit in Education Resources, 227 Middleton Library. Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of the freedom to read, will be observed Sept. 21 - 27 by libraries, bookstores, schools, and others concerned with freedom of speech.

Banned Books Week commemorates one of the most basic freedoms in a democratic society -- freedom from censorship. Since its inception in 1982, it has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves.
