Students celebrate Banned Books Week at the University of Florida.

The University of Florida Honors Program is hosting events this week in honor of Banned Books Week. The national celebration began 30 years ago, and more than 11,000 books have been challenged in that time.

“The last few years, the University libraries have done some small exhibitions here and there, but I thought that maybe this would be a good opportunity for the Honors Program to take hold of something,” UF Honors Program Director Kevin Knudson said.

The events will take place on campus until Thursday and include movie screenings and discussions about banned books.
