It's the American Library Association Banned Book Week.

"A challenge is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group. A banning is the removal of those materials. Challenges do not simply involve a person expressing a point of view; rather, they are an attempt to remove material from the curriculum or library, thereby restricting the access of others."

Apparently most challenges are made by parents -- such as the parent in FL who recently challenged Cracking India, which I posted on here.
