Banned Books celebration

Readers needed for Banned Books celebration

September 24, 2018
The UA-PTC Libraries Committee is looking for a few good readers to participate in campus Read Outs as part of Banned Books Week. Read Outs are planned for Wednesday, Sept. 26, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., in CHARTS Theater on Main Campus and Thursday, Sept. 27, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m., in CHARTS Theater and the Crain Community Room at Little Rock - South.
 
Banned Books Week celebrates the freedom to read banned or challenged books. Its purpose is to raise awareness about material that has been banned or challenged in a variety of settings and to discuss issues relating to intellectual freedom.
 
All events are free and open to the public.
 
Faculty, staff, and students at each location are needed to discuss and read from their favorite banned and/or challenged book for about 10 minutes.
 
For a list of banned and/or challenged books, check out the PTC Libraries Banned Books Week LibGuide at https://libguides.uaptc.edu/bannedbooks.
 
If you are not interested in being a reader, you can still participate by attending the readings to support your colleagues or by bringing your students to the readings.
 
To volunteer or get more information, contact Carita Alexander, Outreach Librarian, at [email protected].
