Book-Lovers are Invited to Read Out from Their Favorite Banned BooksThe IUP English Department, in partnership with the English Graduate Organization, IUP Libraries, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, will host a Banned Books Read Out in the Atrium of the Humanities and Social Sciences Building from 1-2 p.m. on Wednesday, September 28. The Banned Books Read-Out celebrates the freedom to read while it brings awareness to censorship challenges to favorite books and to the ongoing fight to maintain intellectual freedom in schools and libraries across the nation. Students, staff, faculty, and the community are invited to attend. Join us to Read Out your favorite passages from Banned Books—or simply to listen and learn about the censorship issues that affect us all. This year’s national Banned Books theme focuses on celebrating diverse authors, and our team of IUP graduate students is working now to assemble passages that highlight diverse positions quite broadly. Come early to select your passage! Refreshments! Prizes! Vouchers! Join us for a lively celebration of our freedom to read.
