Banned Books Week
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It highlights the value of free and open access to information and 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.
Come to the Perry Library lobby to discover which of your childhood favorites and grown-up classics have been banned or challenged at some point in history. The exhibit, which also features posters from students in English 395: Banned Books, will be available through October 22.
