Banned Book Week: Virtual Read-Out

Since 2000, the ALA hosts Read-outs—a continuous reading of banned and challenged books—in Chicago, IL. In lieu of a physical Read-Out this year, the ALA along with its fellow cosponsors of Banned Books Week will host a virtual one where readers from around the world will be able to participate.  All videos will be featured on the dedicated Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out YouTube channel. Any individual who would like to participate in the event can find instructions on the new Banned Books Week website under Virtual Read-Out.

The Banned Books Week Virtual Read-out also will feature YouTube videos of authors reading from their favorite banned/challenged book or talking about the importance of the freedom to read.
