February 22-28 2009 is Freedom to Read Week in Canada. Even in Canada, books get censored, and this week is devoted to the belief that people should be free to read whatever they want to. Please check out their website!
While checking out their website, I found a really interesting list on select books and magazines which have been challenged over the last fifty years. It gives information on who challenged the book, why it was challenged, and whether or not anything was done. Some of the entries on the list are quite interesting. (TBPL made the list over the Madonna Sex book).
