Banned Books Week (Sept. 27th - Oct. 3rd)
Join Randall Library in celebrating this year's Banned Books Week 2020 theme, "Find Your Freedom to Read" by checking out our Banned Books Bookless Display. This display highlights the importance of open access to information and summarizes each "book’s" value. Accompanying some "books" are descriptions and reasoning behind the work’s censorship and included personal statements written by UNCW students. 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 Bookless display is sponsored by The UNCW English Department and Randall Library. To learn more about Banned Books Week, Frequently Challenged Books, or the Top 10 Most Challenged Books, view here.
