Half-Priced Books assembled a user-friendly and interactive web site in conjection with Banned Books Awareness Week. The most compelling feature is a scrolling bar of controversial titles where the visitor can click on a book and read a short explanation of why it was challenged at one or many locales in the United States. Other educational resources pertinent to the subject are available, including podcasts and quotes from notable dignitaries. The site also invites visitor feedback in the form of blog entries about banned books.
The site can be accessed by clicking on the following link: DeleteCensorship.org
