Browne Parker Literary Press Annual Banned Books Read Out “A celebration of Toni Morisson”

September 23


Annually since 2005 we at Browne Parker Literary Press have hosted a Banned Books Week Event and many times Toni Morrison took the mainstage to read excerpts from The Bluest Eye which has been challenged by many school districts and libraries. This year to honor her legacy and to celebrate banned books we will hold a read out exclusively featuring the works of Toni Morrison. Many local personalities will read selected excerpts from the works of Toni Morrison with a spotlight on The Blues Eye. It is a free event with free light refreshments that will be held at Grant Park all ages are welcome. Come Celebrate Banned Books on September 23, 2019 anytime from 2:00 PM until 9:00 PM.
