Forty Years on From the Launch of Banned Books Week, Censorship is Once Again on the Rise

A banned books display is seen at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena, California on Thursday, September 22, 2022. As Banned Books Week comes to an end, advocates challenge local and nationwide efforts to remove books from shelves, whether in public libraries or from school curriculums and libraries. A particular focus in the last several years has zeroed in on school districts and attempts to limit certain books. Photo by Jim Ruymen/UPI
