I’m actually a little confused with the dates. ALA says it’s Sep 22-28, but a website by Random House that encourages readers to Support Banned Books Week lists the dates as Sep 29-Oct 6… Anyway, it’s the act of reading that counts, no?
According to the American Library Association (ALA):
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.
