1st Floor Rotunda, Morris Library
Participants include: Sheila Simon, Father Dr. Joseph Brown, Rodrigo Carraminana, SIU President Randy Dunn and others. The Readings will be recorded and posted on the ALA Banned Books Youtube channel as part of its Virtual Read Out.
Since the inception of Banned Books Week in 1982, libraries and bookstores throughout the country have staged local read-outs—a continuous reading of banned/challenged books—as part of their activities. Now in it’s fifth year (2015), readers from around the world can participate in the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out by creating videos proclaiming the virtues of the freedom to read that will be featured on a dedicated YouTube channel.
