The freedom to express ourselves and the freedom to read without censorship or interference are central to freedom of speech and diversity of thought in our society and around the world. We are proud to work with Penguin Random House to support the 35th annual Banned Books Week and rally behind those books and authors who continue to face challenges at home and around the globe.
In celebration, from September 25 through September 30, for each piece of Banned Books merchandise purchased on our website, Penguin Random House will donate one book in support of hurricane relief efforts through First Book, up to 10,000 books. Please join us in helping to support those areas impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and start browsing now.
