Read Out!

Erin Price reading from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

We may have started a new tradition at the BSC Library — a Read Out! for Banned Books Week.  On Monday, September 27, two BSC students and four BSC employees read selections from books that have been banned or challenged in these United States.

  • Dan Rogers kicked off the event by intoning a list of banned books and their authors.
  • BSC President Larry Skogen shared an excerpt from Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • Gary Gugel shared several poems from A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
  • Erin Price read from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • AnnMarie Kajencki shared an excerpt from Beloved by Toni Morrison
  • Tim Deviley read from Jack Kerouac’s On the Road
  • Janelle Masters wrapped up with a reading from our 2008 Campus Read book, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
