9.16.13 Banned Books Week
As many of you may know, the American Library Association (ALA) holds its annual celebration of the Banned Books Week during the last week of September. In observance of this event (and in order to revive a time-honored tradition of Clemson’s English dep.), students in two of the World Literature classes will read excerpts from various books that have been censored or suppressed throughout history. There will be three events associated with the Banned Books Week
September 23, 7-9pm, Daniel 100b
Screening of François Truffaut’s “Fahrenheit 451” (1966), an adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s eponymous novel published 13 years earlier.
Running time: 110 min.
September 25 and 27, 10-12:30pm, Cooper Library front lobby
Banned Books Readings
Students will read excerpts from banned books by Kafka, J.D. Salinger, Harper Lee, Anne Frank, etc.
All events are open and free to the public.
