Books Unite Us Poster
This design is also available on other products at bit.ly/GraphicsGiftShop.
Banned Books Week is September 26 – October 2, 2021.
Books unite us. Sharing stories important to us means sharing a part of ourselves. Books reach across boundaries and build connections between readers. Reading—especially books that extend beyond our own experiences—expands our worldview. Censorship, on the other hand, divides us and creates barriers.
This year’s Banned Books Week theme draws attention to the benefits of unrestricted reading and the harms of censorship. Ignite discussions about the power of stories by displaying this poster in your library, school, or office.
