The Entresse Library in Espoo and FAIFE (Committee on Freedom of Access to Information and Freedom of Expression) have together created the world’s first Banned Books video calendar.
The project has been supported by a number of organisations, including the National Library of Scotland, National Library of Finland, IFLA, National Library of the Netherlands, Europeana and American Library Association.

The project’s participants include leading figures in the library world, who introduce their favourite banned books: Finnish IFLA President-Elect Sinikka Sipilä presents Mika Waltari’s The Egyptian, Kai Ekholm introduces Allen Ginsberg’s Howl and Executive Director Jill Cousins of the Europeana Foundation expounds on James Joyce’s Ulysses. Other books include Art Spiegelman’s Maus, Hitler’s Mein Kampf, Boccaccio’s Decameron and Walt Disney’s Donald Duck.

Each day a new window will open and a new book will be presented on several sites throughout the world. The Advent calendar can also be accessed at kirjastokaista.fi/bannedbooks
