   Banned Books Week   is an annual awareness campaign that celebrates the freedom to read, draws attention to banned  and challenged books and  highlights persecuted individuals.

The United States campaign stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them" and the requirement to keep material publicly available so that people can develop their own conclusions and opinions.

The international campaign notes individuals persecuted because of the writings that they produce, circulate or read.
