Hello Beautiful Readers!

September 22 through 28 is Banned Books Week, here in the USA. This is an annual campaign, organized by the American Library Association, to bring awareness to intellectual freedom by highlighting books that have restricted access in schools and libraries.

Of course, here in the US, books aren't actually "banned". The books on the "banned books lists" are mostly challenged by parents who don't want a book in the school library because they feel it is age-inappropriate, or goes against their beliefs.

But, across the world, Amnesty International also supports and celebrates Banned Books Week. AI brings attention to the authors and journalists who are prosecuted for what they write.

I like to celebrate every year by reading a a book or two from the banned books list.

Top 100 Challenged Books 2000-2009

Top 100 Challenged Books 1990-1999

Yearly Lists of Challenged Books (as PDF files)


So! Let's send a postcard! On the back, write about your favorite banned book, or write which banned book you're going to read next!

This will be our usual exchange for one postcard: you send one postcard and you get one postcard. The postcard can be store-bought or hand-made and can have any kind of picture on the front. We are an International group. Newbies are so very welcome!

Sign up for this postcard exchange by posting a reply here, or by messaging me, before the evening of Saturday, 14 September. You will receive your partner's address on Sunday morning, the 15th.

Happy Day,
rift
