Books, uncensored! Celebrate your freedom to read

 
This week, GL editors and interns are pulling their favorite books off the shelves, busting ‘em open and celebrating their right to read. Thousands of books have been banned, burned and censored in the past, and every year, new books are added to the list. This week, however, the publishing world is coming together to honor the literary treasures that have been and continue to be challenged.

 

Banned Books Week has celebrated the freedom to read for the last 30 years. This year, it runs through Oct. 6. And we’ve got just the way to join in the fun: participate in the virtual read-out on YouTube!

 

Hundreds of people across the globe are recording themselves reading their favorite banned books, from Dr. Seuss to To Kill a Mockingbird. Fire up your Web cam, open your pick to a memorable part and start telling a story that everyone should be able to read.

 

Want to take part? It’s easy! Upload your vid to YouTube, then use this form to submit it to the official Banned Books Week official YouTube channel.
