Freedom to Read Display of Challenged Books

February 26 to March 3, 2017

Freedom to Read Week (February 26 to March 4), encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The week is organized by the Book and Periodical Council's Freedom of Expression Committee, a group committed to promoting intellectual freedom in Canada. Since 1978, the Freedom of Expression Committee has worked with educators, librarians, publishers, writers, booksellers, advocacy groups and the community at large to provide information that addresses censorship and book and magazine challenges in Canada. On display, are a selection of titles which have been challenged, censored and in some cases banned outright. Take a look at the exhibit which runs to Friday, March 3.
