Banned Books Read-In 2020
Celebrate the freedom to read what you want!
In celebration of Banned Books Week (Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 2020), Randall Library and the UNCW English Department are co-hosting a virtual Banned Books Read-In event on Thursday, Oct. 1 from 11:00 am-12:30 pm in Zoom.
Join us as we bring together student voices to read excerpts from their favorite Banned Books and share how their selections have impacted their lives. Participant is not required and all are welcomed to attend. For more information and history of the American Library Association's Banned Books Week, click here.
