Event date and time
Join us for a Zoom read-out of banned and challenged books. Listen in as students and faculty read excerpts of banned books in celebration of Banned Books Week 2020. If you would like to participate by reading out an excerpt yourself, please email the Humanities Librarian, Paizha, at [email protected]. Access the event via Zoom.
Banned Books Week spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community—librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers and readers of all types—in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
