Banned Books Reading

FSU’s English Honors Society Presents Banned Books Reading

Frostburg State University’s English Honors Society Sigma Tau Delta will host its annual Banned Books Reading on Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m., on the third floor of the Lewis J. Ort Library. This event is free and open to the public.

The night of readings will be focused on books that have been banned and questioned because of the controversy surrounding them. Some of the top books for 2017 that fit these criteria are “Little Bill,” “Looking for Alaska” and “This One Summer.” Sigma Tau Delta’s event coincides with the American Library Association’s (ALA) annual Banned Books Week.

ALA has been around since Oct. 6, 1876. The organization promotes intellectual freedom, diversity and literacy. As this year’s event takes place, ALA reminds Americans not to take this precious democratic freedom for granted.
