This button is part of a campaign for Banned Book Week sponsored by Random House. Banned Book Week is a response to censorship- the act of suppressing ideas and information that part of the population finds unacceptable- and promotes the First Amendment right to free speech by encouraging people to read books that have been censored. Several organizations, including the Library of Congress and the American Library Association, support this campaign and encourage readers to protect intellectual freedom by opposing censorship. Banned books include the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, The Color Purple by Alice Walker, and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
