Since the inception of Banned Books Week in 1982, libraries and bookstores throughout the country have staged local read-outs, continuous readings of banned and challenged books. This year, we will join the action by hosting a read-aloud of banned books, explaining their importance and sharing their words. Join us virtually or in-person on Thursday, October 5th at 5:30 pm downtown at the Rosenzweig Arts Center for a live read-aloud following the Banned Books art exhibit reception. You can share your reading live or submit a recorded reading. Your words have power. Stand up to censorship and declare your literary freedoms by reading from a banned book and discussing its importance. Guidelines for participating in the event, virtually or in-person, can be found at
