Read Out!

“There are worse crimes than burning books.  One of them is not reading them.” — Joseph Brodsky

A small but mighty crowd attended yesterday’s Read Out! for Banned Books Week.  Guest readers included:

  • Mercer Sage read from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-time Indian by Sherman Alexie
  • Breann Harm read from Lord of the Flies by William Golding
  • Amanda Humann read from Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
  • Julie Perkins read from Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
  • Kalyn Retterath read from To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  • Dan Rogers read from The French Lieutenant’s Woman by John Fowles
  • AnnMarie Kajencki shared tidbits from these children’s books: Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume
