September 21st marks the start of Banned Books Week, and this year’s focus is on comics and graphic novels. Graphic novels continually rate on the American Library Association’s (ALA) Top 10 list of Frequently Challenged Books, with BONE landing at the #10 spot this year.


Banned Books Week celebrates the Freedom to Read by encouraging readouts,displays, and community activities designed to raise awareness of the ongoing threats of censorship that continue to offers a broad range of resources about banned and challenged comics, as well as tools that libraries, retailers and individuals can use to develop their own BannedBooks Week celebrations.
