Banned Books=Banned Ideas
What's your favorite book? Has it ever been publicly challenged?

Come and read an excerpt of it at the
Banned Books Reading
Tuesday, October 28th
12:00 to 1:00 P.M.
at the Science & Research Center Plaza

Sponsored by the Society of Professional Journalists and the University Library to support the freedom of speech.

How to Participate
Submit your chosen literary passage in advance of the event to schedule your time on the microphone. Or, just come to our tent at the S&R Center Plaza on Tuesday, October 28 during the common hour to hear the readings. Afterwards, visit the Library to peruse the display of censored books.

Interested in doing a reading, but not sure that you have ever read a banned book? For recent examples visit https://library.csuohio.edu/research/portals/freedom.html or come to the Library's Banned Books display. Choose a short passage to read (or consider briefly discussing why a certain book or author was censored) then send your idea to Audrey McCrone, the SPJ Cleveland State Student Chapter President, at a.mccrone@csuohio.edu.

Come rain or shine. Exercise your right of free speech!

This event is open to all faculty, staff, and students.
