Banned Books Week 2011

Come and hear people read from books that have been challenged or banned in U.S. public schools and libraries. We gather for the 15th Annual Reading of Banned and Challenged Books in honor of American Library Association's annual Banned Books Week.

We'll be gathering in Spratt 214 (The Enright Room) on Tuesday, September 27 from 7-8 PM to hear readers, including Dr. Vartabedian and KQ-2's Bridget Blevins, share material that has been the targets of censors.

If you need more reason than the fact that the U.S. Constitution is pretty cool, there will be free snacks and drinks. Bring a date--he or she will think you're edgy and hip. I know we will.

Sponsored by the departments of EFLJ and Education, the MWSU Library, and Prairie Lands Writing Project.
