Banned Books Reading, 9/29

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

Date: Wednesday, September 29, 2010.
Time: 7 pm - 8 pm.
Location: 214/216 Spratt Hall (Enright Room), Missouri Western State University
Sponsors: The Department of English, Foreign Languages, and Journalism; The Department of Education; The Missouri Western State University Library; Prairie Lands Writing Project, SNCTE.

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.

Readers will include our own C.J. Jeney and Jessica Wilkinson (SNCTE President) as well as Ms. Sarah Lawson, Anchor and Producer, News-Press 3 Now

Refreshments will be served following the readings. This event is free and open to the public.

This has all the makings of a swell date: it's free, there will be refreshments, and people will read racy things out loud. It's really hard for an English Department to do better than that, so come on by!
