21 Designs to Wear During Banned Books Week

Put your banned book in the air, and wave it like you just don’t care; happy Banned Books Week 2018! It’s hard to believe that in our day and age, so many books from classics to comics are still subject to the censoring finger wag. And books that have been challenged on the shelf don’t stop at classically challenged books like Catcher in the Rye and To Kill a Mockingbird. Stories many of us grew up on like Harry Potter and Where the Wild Things Are consistently make the list. And the theme of Banned Books Week 2018 – “banning books silences stories” – is exactly why we (along with literary superheroes like the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund) celebrate books that have been challenged; to keep these stories talkin’.

When was the last time you dove into a good book? To celebrate Banned Books Week this year, grab your favorite literary adventure (banned or not), rock a book design that speaks volumes (pun absolutely intended) about your love of reading, and dive into the story.
