Banned Books Week is an annual, national celebration of your freedom to read. Chapel Hill Public Library, in partnership with Community Arts & Culture, celebrates by asking local artists to create original works of art inspired by a banned book or author whose work has been challenged.
Each piece represents the ongoing struggle for intellectual freedom and the dangers of censorship.
You can collect a free set by visiting the library during Banned Books Week, September 22-28.
