Each year since 1984, Canada’s Book and Periodical Council, with the support and sponsorship of libraries, publishers and governments, runs a Freedom to Read Week. As per the official website, “Freedom to Read Week is an annual event that encourages Canadians to think about and reaffirm their commitment to intellectual freedom, which is guaranteed them under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.” Much like Banned Books Week in the United States, Freedom to Read Week is widely promoted and marketed with new key art for each year.

Above, I’ve chosen a few posters from the past 30+ years that I particularly like, but you can view the entire collection at the Freedom to Read Week poster gallery.
