All events will take place from 5 pm to 6 pm in the Feinberg Library Reading Room on level three. They are open to the public.
Feinberg Library invites you to attend our 3rd Annual Banned Books Read-Out, to be held in the second-floor lobby of Feinberg Library on Wednesday, September 24th from noon to 2:00 PM.
This event highlights the issue of "freedom to read" by having faculty, staff, and students read passages from banned and challenged books—from Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass to Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian.
Banned Books Read-Out is a “drop-in” event. Everyone is welcome to stop by for a reading or two or for the whole two hours.
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.
Word Thursdays is a Feinberg Library series featuring local writers giving readings of their works and leading conversations about poetry and fiction. Stay tuned for the list of the invited authors. Audience members will be invited to read from their own works in an Open Mic session at each event. Refreshments will be served.
