This is Freedom to Read Week in Canada.
Freedom to Read Week is an annual event “that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.”
Here is a selective list of some books that have been banned or challenged in Canada.
You can show your support for Freedom to Read Week by popping into your local library:

Ask if any books in your library have been challenged – and why.
