Banned Books Week Readout
September 28, 2013
Location: Pilla Atrium
Join us as we celebrate the freedom to read!
The Ursuline Studies Program, with co-sponsorship provided by the Besse Library, Campus Ministry, English Department and Andrews Osborne Academy, will host a celebration of reading and freedom for Banned Books Week. A Read Out
will be held on Tuesday, September 24 from 11 AM - 2PM in the Pilla Atrium and the Besse Library.
According to Mimi Pipino, Director of the Ursuline Studies Program, "Banned Books Week reminds us of the power that the gift of intellectual freedom confers. Education and good books open us up to experiences of others who don't live or think as we do; they can make us uncomfortable, and challenge us to examine our values and view of the world. The Read Out gives the Ursuline College community an opportunity to celebrate that freedom—and to read some really great books!"
At the Read Out, you will have the chance to enter a raffle and win a prize! If you are interested in participating as a reader or for more information, please contact the Ursuline Studies Department at 440 646 8110.
Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. 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 to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
