Banned Books Social

Banned Books Week (9/18-9/24) is an annual national celebration of our freedom to read.

Join Booksweet on Saturday, September 24 at 7 pm for a Banned Books Social!

Fun includes:

  • Banned Book Party Games – low stress, lots of fun, and a great way to meet fellow book enthusiasts
  • Delicious snacks and iced tea from our neighbors at Exotic Bakeries
  • A letter writing station and advocacy resources
  • Door prizes

Your RSVP is so helpful to our planning.

If the weather is nice, we’ll gather outside in the courtyard. Otherwise, we’ll be masked and indoors (children’s section). Learn more about health and safety at Booksweet.
