Banned Books Week Readout: Religion

September 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Get caught engaging in a revolutionary act: reading banned or challenged books! Whether you are participating in Banned Books Bingo or not, we want you to join us for one or more of these public affirmations of liberty, each hosted by a different community group. Those groups will share a little bit about how attacks on intellectual freedom affect the group or issue they focus on, but the bulk of these events will be dedicated to quiet reading to demonstrate resistance to the wave of challenges in schools and libraries across the country.

This session’s focus is on books banned or challenged on religious grounds – whether challengers deem a work to be too religious, or not religious enough. It will be held in front of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 179 Main Street.

NOTE: Books you bring don’t need to have been formally challenged or banned anywhere! If they fit the theme of the session, then someone, somewhere, is sure to consider them “controversial,” and thus they are at risk of challenge.
