The USF in Lakeland Library and Student Government invite you to celebrate YOUR freedom to read by participating in a READ OUT! event during Banned Books Week.
What: Read from a challenged or banned book for a 15 minutes period. There is no microphone, no sitting audience – you read from a passage of your choice from a book of your choice in a normal voice to passers-by. Anyone can read: students, staff or faculty members.
When: Tuesday, October 2, from 11:30 AM to 1 PM and from 4:30 PM to 6 PM
Where: On the LTB terrace, outside the USF in Lakeland Library/Open Use Lab
How: Sign up with the Business Librarian, Lisa Zilinski (firstname.lastname@example.org), with your preferred time and title (if possible, readers should bring their own books since the Library has a limited selection. Please see the 2011-2012 list of challenged or banned books and the list of the 100 most challenged or banned books from 2000 to 2009 for title ideas.) We’ll do our best to accommodate your preferred time.
Don’t want to read out loud? Come to the Library during the week to check out the displays, pick up a handout, or participate in a book or movie discussion.
This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Freedom to Read! Banned Books Week takes place from September 30 to October 6. Find more information about Banned Books Week and the freedom to read on the American Library Association website.
