As part of Banned Book Week, you are invited to BANNED: A Virtual Banned Books Read-Out & Discussions on the Freedom to Read on October 1 at 4:30pm EST. In addition to a zine workshop and “flash-talks” from faculty at Rutgers-NB libraries and SC&I on censorship and free speech, this virtual open mic-night will also give participants the opportunity to read from, listen to, and celebrate their favorite banned/challenged books. All kinds of texts are welcome, as are all languages!
