Faculty, staff, and administrators across campus are helping us celebrate the freedom to read in honor of Banned Books Week. They read the first page of their favorite banned book on camera. We will be releasing the video during the main event, September 22-28.
Clifton Griffin, Academic Affairs, reads Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain.
Dean Rivizza, Health and Sport Sciences, reads Kaffir Boy by Mark Mathabane.
Ron Gutberlet, Biological Sciences, reads On the Road by Jack Kerouac.
8 days, 9 hours, 19 minutes, and 37 seconds to go until Banned Books Week is here!
"It’s there so people can choose to read it. Nobody has to read something that’s in a library. Nobody has to buy something that’s in a bookstore. But you have choice, and that’s what this is all about. And if the book isn’t there, you don’t have the opportunity to choose to read it."
