Banned Books Week 2014: Home

We hope this topic guide will serve as a rich source of information as well as an interactive site where you can voice your opinion!

EVENTS: BBW 2014

Celebrate your freedom to read at the UT Arlington Central Library during Banned Books Week 2012. You can participate in any or all of these activities:

* Virtual Read-Outs: We will video record you reading a 2-minute passage from your favorite banned or challenged book and upload the video to the Library's YouTube channel and to ALA's Virtual Read-Out YouTube channel.
Time/dates: TBD

* Freedom to Read Photos: Have your photograph made with your favorite banned or challenged book, and we will put it into our BBW template, upload it to the Library's Flickr page, and send you a copy.

* Graffiti Boards: Share your thoughts on censorship and banning/challenging of books.

* Exhibits on the first and second floors of the Central Library showcasing banned/challenged books for children and young adults; Mexican-American and LGBTQ literature; books by women authors and authors of color; and books that have been suppressed/banned in other countries.

* Focus on Faculty: TBA
