Fall 2014

Banned Books Read-Out

Banned Books Read-Out is an annual event that highlights the issue of "freedom to read" by having faculty, staff, and students read passages from banned and challenged books. This year's iteration, held on September 24th, was another wonderful success, with passages read from Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, Heller's Catch-22, Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, Rushdie's The Satanic Verses, and more.


Books That Rocked the World... And Still Do!

Come hear SUNY Plattsburgh faculty speak about groundbreaking books that changed our understanding of the world, including Dr. Becky Kasper discussing Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). Specific speakers and dates for each program will be announced as they are scheduled.
