College to sponsor Banned Books Read-Out

PLATTSBURGH — SUNY Plattsburgh students and faculty will read selections from books that have been banned or challenged at some time in history during Feinberg Library’s first-ever Banned Books Read-Out.

It will be held noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, in the library’s third-floor reading room.

Members of the campus and community are invited to attend at any time during the two-hour read-out, which is being held in conjunction with the American Library Association’s 2012 Banned Books Week.

According to the association, “Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.”
