Banned books advent calendar
Every day from 1 December until Christmas, a book will be revealed in the world's first banned books advent video calendar.
Each of the daily videos features a professional librarian, politician or other contributor discussing a banned book.
Available on websites round the world, the online calendar aims to promote debate about censorship.
