Feinberg Library to Host Readings of Banned and Challenged Books
SUNY Plattsburgh students and faculty will read selections from books that have been banned or challenged at some time in history during Feinberg Library’s first-ever Banned Books Read-Out Wednesday, Oct. 3, from noon to 2 p.m. in the library’s third-floor reading room.
Members of the campus and community are invited to attend at any time during the two-hour read-out, which is being held in conjunction with the American Library Association’s 2012 Banned Books Week.
According to the association, “Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.”
