Speak out for 'Banned Books'

Come speak out on behalf of the books, ideas and works of art that have been banned, censored or challenged throughout human history.

In recognition of Banned Books Week, an annual celebration of books and our right to read them, ASU Library is hosting a Read Out, a public reading of books, newspapers, plays and other texts that have been banned, challenged or restricted in some way, or that speak to the issue of freedom of speech. 

The Read Out will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 25, on the north side of the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus.

The theme for this year’s Banned Books Week, sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA), is “Speak Out.” 

Events related to Banned Books Week are set to take place at all ASU libraries on all campuses during Banned Books Week, which is September 23-30, 2018.
