Did you know every year there's a Banned Books Week? This year's runs from the 18th to the 24th 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.
We've put together some of the wonderful books which have been banned over the years in different places around the world.
