Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:

The Monday of National Library Week - April 24, 2023 - will mark one year since the launch of the Unite Against Book Bans campaign. To honor the occasion, the American Library Association is calling on readers, advocates, and library lovers to fight back against censorship in a national day of action to defend, protect, and celebrate your right to read freely, Right to Read Day.

On the same day, the ALA will release its list of the Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2022. The list follows ALA's recent unveiling of data showing record-shattering attempts to remove books from school and public libraries, and it shows us what types of books are being challenged the most and why.

It's also a call to action.

Join us on #RightToReadDay and beyond by participating in the actions below to support your library and defend the freedom to read in your community.

Good Thing #1. 2, and 3

TLA Conference!

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 

Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do? 
  • What else is going on in your life?
