September Calendar of Book Events

September is a big reading month – perhaps the weather, perhaps school?
It is the Literacy Month, yesterday also the UN International Literacy Day.
September is the National Library Card sign up month
The Last Week of September is Banned Book Week (see the library’s web site for a list of 100 banned books – that you won’t believe were ever banned. Charlotte’s Web???)
the 17th September is Bestselling Books Day – head to any of the Best Sellers Lists and give a book a go! (The Nike slogan of  ‘Just do it’ = applies to reading too!

September 25th is National Book Festival on the National Mall (Library of Congress). It will be hosted by President Obama and his wife Michelle. Their web site has a list of authors and ways to participate.

Please feel free to add comments of events, especially local, that you know!
