Banned Books Week will be October 1 – 7, 2023. Book bans and restrictions are on the rise in classrooms and libraries across the country. We invite readers, authors, educators, librarians, and everyone who opposes censorship in America to get involved during Banned Books Week 2023. Learn more about PEN America’s groundbreaking research, this year’s events, and how you can help us #FreeTheBooks!
