Banned Books Week @ The Ames Library

banned books

Read them if you dare! Banned Books Week is being marked at the library by an intriguing assortment of banned books that are hidden from view with covers that highlight why they have been     challenged.  Check these out on the cart across from the Circulation Desk. Just around the corner are 20 campus celebrities, each hugging their favorite banned book.

And join us on October 2 for a talk by Barbara Jones, “Censorship for Religious Reasons: From the Bible to Harry Potter.” Barbara is the Executive Director of the American Library Association’s     Office of Intellectual Freedom. Enjoy 2 short plays from forbidden works as well directed by IWU theatre students Hannah Dhue and Aaron Weinstein –  4:00 p.m. in the Evelyn Chapel
