The annual celebration of the freedom to read is upon us again and we’re ready for Banned Books Week. We believe families and individuals have the right to decide for themselves what to read and what to skip, but should not decide for others by having books removed or banned. Since the first Banned Books Week in 1982, the American Library Association has recorded that more than 11,000 books have been challenged. So to celebrate Banned Books Week, we've come up with some reimagined book titles for you, inspired by the reasons they were challenged. Enjoy!
