Banned Books Read-Out Raises Awareness of Banned, Challenged Titles

Feinberg Library’s annual Banned Books Read-Out will be held Wednesday, Sept. 28 from noon to 2 p.m. in the library’s second-floor lobby.

Students and faculty will read selections from books that have been banned or challenged at some time in history, including some that are on a banned-books list now. 

New this year will be a program featuring students from Dr. Tracie Church Guzzio’s first-year seminar class, “Multicultural American Literature,” who will be reading and reflecting on such banned books as “The Absolutely True Adventures of a Part-Time Indian,” by Sherman Alexie, and “The Bluest Eye,” by Toni Morrison.

SUNY Plattsburgh’s Banned Books Read-Out, held in conjunction with the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week Sept. 25-Oct. 1, is a drop-in event, open to the public to stop by to hear a reading for any or all of the two hours. For more information, contact Tim Hartnett, associate librarian, at 518-564-5205 or [email protected]
