Banned Books Week is a celebration of the freedom of speech and the freedom to read. It is held annually during the last week in September. It celebrates the FREADOM to read and experience ideas even if others might not agree with them. We at CHB, as an independent bookstore, particularly value freedom of speech and the freedom of our customers to choose freely what to read! This week we're celebrating books that others have attempted to ban (or unfortunately, sometimes succeeded in banning), in the spirit of that freedom!
