Banned books

“The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” “The Grapes of Wrath,” “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Great Gatsby” are just a few of the classic books that have been banned or challenged over the years. In support of the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week, the U’s J. Willard Marriott Library will host a Banned Books Open Reading, Sept. 26, 11 a.m-2 p.m., to invite students, faculty, staff and the community to read a passage from any book or play that has been banned at one time. Alberta Comer, dean of the library, is available to discuss why certain books get banned and the importance of free and open access to information of all types.
