College to Host Banned Books Read-Out

08:32am EDT, 10 Sep 2013

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (Sept. 10, 2013) — SUNY Plattsburgh’s Feinberg Library will host the second annual Banned Books Read Out from 2 to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, in the Feinberg Library lobby.

The event features students, faculty and staff reading excerpts from selections of the top 100 banned/challenged books from 2000 to 2009. Titles include “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Speak,” “Black Boy,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Kite Runner” and “In the Night Kitchen.”

“The idea is to raise awareness of the many intellectual, political and social issues that are seldom found in a public setting and to highlight their importance, especially in the college community,” said Cerise Oberman, distinguished librarian at Feinberg Library.

The reading is a “drop-in” event, allowing participants to either stay for the full two hours or stop by for a reading or two.

Participants interested in reading a selection can contact Oberman at 518-564-5184 or cerise.oberman@plattsburgh.edu.
