Eugene McDermott Library will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Banned Books Week with readings by campus faculty and administrators of notable banned or challenged books. Passages from The Lord of the Flies, Women in Love, In Cold Blood, The Awakening and Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure (Fanny Hill) will be included. Censorship has always been an important issue for libraries and reading from several of these formerly banned and contested books will remind us of our rights based on the 1st and 14th Amendments. Light refreshments will be served.
