Celebrating Banned Books Week 2019

Banned Books Week September 22-27

Join Randall Library in saying, "Lift Every Voice and READ!" and check out our collection of challenged materials with thought-provoking themes! The exhibit highlights the importance of open access to information.  Accompanying some of the books 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 at the New & Popular Books section. All items are available for check out.
