In recognition of Banned Books Week,. the University Bookstore will sponsor readings from banned books by professors from the English, Linguistics and Communication Department. Each year the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom records hundreds of attempts by individuals and groups to have books removed from library shelves and from classrooms. Stop by Campus Walk in front of Lee Hall between noon and 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27, and Thursday, Sept. 28, to hear excerpts from classics that have been banned or challenged. Copies of banned books will be available for purchase. Read your own banned book!
