Image Picker for Section 0
Banned Book Read-Out - September

Sigma Tau Delta, the Department of English and UD Library, Museums and Press invite you to join UD's 6th Annual Banned Book Read-Out on Wednesday, Sept. 26. We'll gather on the South Green between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to read passages from our favorite banned and challenged books, celebrate intellectual freedom, and discuss the importance of free and open access to information. In case of rain, the Read-Out will take place in thee Class of 1941 Lecture Room in Morris Library.

If you'd like to read or speak during the Sept. 26 event, please sign up for a 5-minute or 10-minute time slot. Bring your own book, or choose an excerpt from one of the UD Library's books on display. Walk-up readers are welcome, though advance sign-ups will be given first priority. 

For inspiration on what to read, take a look at the American Library Association's list of frequently challenged books. Additionally, any texts that argue for intellectual freedom are encouraged.

In addition to the Read-Out, we're sponsoring the following events to celebrate Banned Books Week (Sept. 23-29):• Banned Book Raffle – We'll give away a challenged book at the top of every hour during the Read-Out on Sept. 26, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.•  Tweet Your Support --Celebrate your freedom to read by showing your support on Twitter. Use hashtags #UDReadsBannedBooks and #BannedBooksWeek when you speak out (and tweet out) against censorship. 

Morris Library Display – Now through October 26, view Literature vs. the Law on the first floor of Morris Library. The four-case exhibition highlights legal cases involving the written word and raises important questions and about the freedom of the press and intellectual property rights. 

We look forward to seeing you at all the Banned Books Week events and reminding UD that free people read freely!
