Banned Books Reading Time Set

The Thirteenth Annual Reading of Challenged and Banned Books in recognition of the American Library Association’s Banned Book Week.

MWSU students, faculty as well as members of the St. Joseph community will hold a reading of books that have been either banned or challenged in U.S. schools in recent years. Refreshments will be served following the readings. This event is free and open to the public. In other words, it's a good, cheap date.
