Teen Central’s Banned Books Week Film Fest
Banned Books Week, the annual celebration of the freedom to read, will be held the week of September 24th in 2017. In our Banned Books Week Film Fest each of these films are based on books that have been challenged and ultimately banned in communities across the U.S.For this year’s celebration, the coalition of organizations that sponsors Banned Books Week have decided to emphasize the importance of the First Amendment, which guarantees our inherent right to read (and in our case watch).
