To help encourage people to begin posting videos to the Banned Book Week YouTube channel, the American Library Association and other sponsors of BBW released a two-minute video produced by Bookmans, an independent bookstore in Arizona. Watch the video below.

The Banned Books Week website provides information about the virtual read-out. It also includes an interactive map that shows the location of book challenges in recent years, and a listing of Banned Books Week events sponsored by libraries, bookstores and other groups.

Banned Book Week takes place September 30-October 6.
