Due to the unexpected impact of Hurricane Florence, Randall Library was unable to participate in Banned Books Week 2018, which took place on Sept. 23-29. However, we SEAHAWKS will still stand in support and celebrate our freedom to read whatever we choose!
Join Randall Library in saying, "Lift Every Voice and READ!" and checkout our collection of challenged materials with thought-provoking themes! The exhibit highlights the importance of open access to information and summarizes each book’s value. Accompanying each book is a description and reasoning behind the work’s censorship and includes personal statements written by UNCW students.
Students wrote these statements as part of Michelle Manning’s ENG 382: “Ways of Teaching Literature” In this course, students performed research on banned books and wrote short descriptions that explain how the books positively impacted their lives.The Banned Books Week exhibit is sponsored by The UNCW English Department and Randall Library every September.
The display is located on the First Floor of Randall Library. All items are available for check out.
