Let Freedom Read! The Augusta University Libraries are hosting two Banned Book Read-Ins in conjunction with Banned Books Week. The Read-Ins will be held at the Greenblatt Library on Monday, October 2, at 11am, and at the Reese Library on Tuesday, October 3, at 11am. Attendees are welcome to join library staff in reading aloud from their favorite banned or challenged books (you can sign up by scanning the QR code on the attached flyer).
Since 1982 Banned Books Week events across the country have “highlighted the value of free and open access to information and brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas.”
