“Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community –- librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types –- in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.” – ALA Website

I wanted to focus/spotlight one particular often challenged book this week. This book has appeared on top ten challenged books lists for the years 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. That’s five years on top ten lists!! This book is incredible and I wish everyone would read it. So because of all this, I’ve decided to give away a copy of….
YES! I will give away 2 copies of this book, PLUS! It is open internationally (anywhere The Book Depository ships only).
And another plus, for me at least, is that I’ll be watching the movie this weekend!! CANNOT WAIT!
Check out the movie trailer!
