This Sunday begins the 30th year anniversary for the American Library Association’s annual banned books week celebrating the freedom of speech and standing up against censorship. Here are some ways you can get involved in Columbia:
PARTICIPATE ONLINE- A Virtual Read Out is taking place on a special banned books YouTube channel. Co-chair of this year’s banned book week, Bill Moyers began the conversation with THIS VIDEO. You can make your own short banned book video in support of the freedom of speech and add it to the channel.
Or, if you don’t want to make a video you can partake in a live chat with Bill Moyers on Monday at 2 p.m. on this site. To contribute to the chat comments can be made on the site or on Twitter using the handle @BillMoyers
HIT THE LIBRARIES- Check out challenged book displays in local libraries, like Daniel Boone Regional Library, and pick one out for yourself.
JOIN A CLUB- MU has a Blacklisted Banned Book Club that meets in Memorial Union. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you think about banned books week? Are books that have been banned or challenged things that should be celebrated? Or is there a good reason behind banning some of these books?
