Organizations are encouraged to apply for grants of $1,000 and/or $2,500 in support of "Read-Outs” or other activities that celebrate Banned Books Week (Sept. 21–27, 2014).
A Banned Books Week Read-Out is an event at which people gather to read from books that have been banned or challenged over the years, in order to celebrate the freedom to read.
A total of 28 grants have been given to date to support a wide variety of engaging, provocative, and fun events celebrating the freedom to read. Check out photos and videos from last year's events. Photos from all 28 projects at are available on FTRF's Facebook page and Flickr stream; more information about all the funded events can be found at www.ftrf.org/?Krug_BBW.
