Banned Books Week

Check back for details on events at Book No Further 


Jason Reynolds has been named the inaugural Honorary Chair for Banned Books Week 2021. The New York Times bestselling author will headline the annual national celebration of the right to read, which takes place September 26–October 2, 2021, and features the theme: Books Unite Us, Censorship Divides Us.

Reynolds is the author of more than a dozen books for young people, including All American Boys (with Brendan Kiely), GhostLong Way DownLook Both Ways: A Tale Told in Ten Blocks, and Stamped (with Ibram X. Kendi). A multiple National Book Award finalist, Reynolds has also received a Newbery Honor, a Printz Honor, an NAACP Image Award, and multiple Coretta Scott King Award honors. He is currently serving a two-year term as the National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature for the Library of Congress.

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read, bringing together the entire book community in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.


"Reading banned books offers families a chance to celebrate reading and promote open access to idea." Regan McMahon, Washington Post
