Somerville Banned Book Readathon | A Somerville Public Library + SCATV Collaboration

The event will take place in front of the Somerville Central Library on Saturday, October 1st at 2pm.

About Banned Book Week / Day
Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982 according to the American Library Association. Check out some of the banned books online here.

The Readathon Details
The event will take place in front of the Somerville Central Library on Saturday, October 1st from 2-4pm at the Main Somerville Public Library (79 Highland Ave).

We are looking for individuals to come and read excerpts from various banned books! If you wish to participate, just show up with a book that has been threatened to be banned or pick from a reading that the library provides. Please RSVP here!

P.S. SCATV will be filming this event.
