Join us on The Quad, September 23rd from 10 -11:20 am as we celebrate our freedom to read with a Banned Books Readout. Listen to students, faculty, and staff share controversial passages from their favorite banned or challenged books, or volunteer to read from the pile of selected books provided by the library.

This event is sponsored by Webster University Library and students and faculty in the following First-Year Seminars: “Censored,” “The Course That Must Not Be Named,” “First-Amendment Rights Protection,” and “Propaganda and Persuasion.”
