Is anyone going to celebrate or spread awareness about Banned Books Week?

Don't be alarmed by the name..I'm not pro censorship. This holiday celebrates freedom of speech and literary freedom.

Not explicitly concerned with atheism per se but a celebration of skepticism..skepticism against those who believe that words are so dangerous they must be suppressed.

I am taking this to my local librarian and asking her to participate. If she won't, I'll go directly to my friends, family and neighbors and encourage them to buy at least one book from the list.
