  Banned Books Week (Sep. 27 – Oct. 3, 2020) is a national, annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It spotlights current and historical attempts at censorship, and the goal is to keep material publicly available so people can make their own choices of what to read. The Quitman Public Library has set up a display of books that have been challenged over the years, and some titles may surprise you. “A Farewell to Arms” by Ernest Hemmingway, “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury, and “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison are a few examples.
