“Protecting the right of young people to read a wide variety of books is an integral part of AAP’s work in support of free expression,” said Judith Platt, AAP’s Director of Free Expression Advocacy and chair of the Banned Books Week National Committee. “By focusing on Young Adult books we are reaffirming our commitment to keeping books that are challenging, entertaining and relevant to their lives freely available to them in school and public libraries and on classroom reading lists.”
