Writers’ Reel: Celebrate The Freedom To Read!

 
This week is Banned Books Week, an annual event that highlights the value of free and open access to information. In this Association of American Publishers video, authors Junot Diaz, James Patterson, John Green, and others share the banned books they are reading.
 
“Every time we ban a text, we’re basically tearing up a page from the book of our democratic culture.” – Junot Diaz
