For the Love of Banned Books

For the love of banned books

Nathan McDowell Performs a Selection from Howl

Take a look at the Fall display in the display area by the front door. In honor of the 2011 Augie Reads selection, Fahrenheit 451, we collected beloved books belonging to Augie faculty, staff, and students, books that have been challenged or banned at some point in history. Short quotations accompany the books that explain the owner’s passion about their book. And join this crew for a reading of selections from the banned books on Tuesday, September 20, at 7:00 p.m. in Brew by the Slough! And thanks to senior Nathan McDowell for posing for the display poster hanging in the window. Many of the books’ owners also posed for smaller READ posters distributed around campus.
