This year, ABA is asking its bookstore members to opt-in using this form if they wish to receive a Banned Books Week promotion kit. Stores must submit the form by Thursday, June 7, in order to receive a kit.
Banned Books Week 2018 will be held September 23–29. This year’s theme, “Banning Books Silences Stories,” serves as a reminder that everyone needs to speak out against censorship.
ABA is offering Banned Books Week kits to help bookstores celebrate the freedom to read. These kits will include bookmarks, stickers, counter cards, caution tape, and more.
Banned Books Week kits will be sent to bookstores by request only, and each bookstore branch should fill out a form in order to receive a kit. Supplies are limited and will be fulfilled on a first-come, first-served basis. The kits will be included in the August Red Box. If your store does not participate in the Red Box program, it will be shipped via USPS.
