Event Spotlight: Banned Books Read-Out

On Saturday, take a moment to celebrate all those books that have been banned or challenged last year and in years past by coming to the American Library Association's Banned Books Read-Out. Author Chris Crutcher will host the authors of six of the most challenged books of 2008 and City Lit Theatre Company with Chicago Public Library Readers' Theatre will perform work from frequently challenged authors. This celebration of banned books is as important as ever as books continue to be challenged in schools and libraries and children run the risk of not being exposed to some of literature's greatest works. Show your support for the right to read at 12pm in Bughouse Square, across from the Newberry Library at 60 W. Walton. Call 800-545-2433 for questions and information.
