Banned Books Read-out at CCU

Kimbel Library at Coastal Carolina University will celebrate National Banned Books Week with a Banned Books Read-out at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 28 in the Recital Hall of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts. The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature readings from some of the most commonly banned books in the United States.

"At some point someone has tried to ban many of our favorite books including Catcher in the Rye, Of Mice and Men and Harry Potter. The Banned Book Read-out event is in support of the right to choose books freely for ourselves," said John Watts, assistant librarian in Kimbel Library.

Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Society is also a sponsor of the event.

Banned Books Week, Saturday, Sept. 24 through Saturday, Oct. 2, is an annual celebration of the right to read without censorship. The theme of this year's observance is the freedom to read freely, encouraging people to not take this freedom for granted.
