Caffè Lena Presents 60 Years of Banned Books

October 5, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free

Caffè Lena and the Saratoga Springs Public Library join together to celebrate Banned Books Week. On October 5, enjoy music from Reese Fulmer and Dan Berggren, as well as local authors who will share readings from titles that have been banned or challenged in the past 60 years. This in-person event will be streamed via Zoom. Please register online.

Both organizations recognize the contributions of authors and illustrators amid the current national uptick in efforts to ban controversial books from libraries, suppressing conversations and the ability to think for ourselves.
