Read-Out in Corpus Christi, TX

September 30, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT


League of Women Voters Corpus Christi Area and Black Cat Books are hosting a read-out to kick off Banned Books Week. You can defend democracy and participate in the read out by reading a passage from a banned book of your choice. We encourage you to also discuss your personal feelings about the book you read from and why it’s important to be heard. Of course, you can also come and show support and listen to what everyone shares if you prefer. Feel free to bring a snack and/or beverage for yourself or to share with others.

Black Cat Books is a locally owned, independent bookstore located at 1318 S. Staples Street, with lots of parking available on the street.
