Banned Book Read-A-Loud

Join us for a celebration of the freedom to read! Students, faculty and staff are invited to read a selection from their favorite banned book or just come and listen to others.

View the top 10 challenged books or the top 100 most challenged books.

Banned Books Week at K-State is sponsored by the department of English, K-State Libraries , Sigma Tau Delta and the Children's and Adolescent Literature Community student organization.

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information.
