Banned Books Week 2021 is approaching, with the annual celebration of the freedom to read without censorship falling between September 26 - October 2. As in years past, the American Library Association has compiled a list of the top ten most banned and/or challenged books from 2020 (the last full year of data) to draw attention to this ongoing issue.
National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated each year from September 15 - October 15. We challenge you to read any book written by a Hispanic author, or a book about a Latin American country, or a book set in a Latin American country (including those countries not listed below). You may read one of our recommended books or pick out a book on your own.
