Ban The Ban

Let’s see what all the fuss is about!

Chances are you’ve read some of these “infamous” materials, but probably not all of them. Join us for dramatic readings of a selection of contemporary and historical writings that have been banned, at various points during the last century, by schools, leaders, churches, and governments. Readings include:

George (Melissa), by Alex Gino;
The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss;
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian, by Sherman Alexie;
Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov;
Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out, by Susan Kuklin,
and many more.
