Banned Books Week: Celebrating the Freedom to Read is an annual American Library Association event observed during the last week of September. Banned Books Week celebrates free and open access to information and intellectual freedom. NCSU Libraries celebrates this annual event with Banned Books Soundwave, a website offering sound clips of excerpts from banned books read by members of the NC State community including faculty, administrators, and students.
Marian Fragola, Director of Program Planning and Outreach for NSCU Libraries, will discuss Banned Books Week and the Banned Books Soundwave project on Mystery Roach. We’ll also listen to some banned songs and hear a few recordings from the Banned Books Soundwave project. Should be a fun morning.
Tune in, Saturday 9/25/2010, 8-10am.
Talk to you then.
