Banned Books Week Celebration at Bookish Emporium

October 7, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm CDT


Come out and celebrate the Freedom to Read! All week long we will be promoting and celebrating books that others deem unworthy for all because they didn’t like it.

We will be hosting a Read Out from 12-2 pm. What is a banned read out? It’s a gathering of people who stand with the banned books, during which passages are shared aloud from our favorite banned books! Censorship is out of control in our country, and this is a way to friendly protest and show solidarity!

Vendors will be available on-site to provide a unique experience, including local Pitbull Rescue, Dirt Roads Mutt Rescue.
