Banned Books Café

Thursday, February 26, 2009 / 7pm

Celebrate your freedom to read, view, listen, and play during this
year’s Freedom to Read Week!

Join us at the Stanley A. Milner Library as we share passages from
some of our favourite challenged or banned books and discuss thoughts
about censorship, and the meaning behind freedom to read. Participate
in readings and discussions, or just sit back and listen. Plenty of
draws and prizes to be won including the grand prize of a ‘Bag of
Banned Books’!

Everyone is welcome to share excerpts from papers they have written or
projects they have done on intellectual freedom, or read from
challenged books (we will have selections available for you, or you
can bring your own). Other creative suggestions are encouraged!

If you would like to participate, please email Caroline Land at
cland@epl.ca, or just show up on the night!

All are welcome! Plenty of coffee and refreshments to go around.

Don’t forget to visit our website: www.epl.ca/freedom - participate in
our poll or try our online quiz, and win!
