September 26, 2018, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Archives Building
For the Brown Bag Lunch on Wednesday, September 26, 2018, the Butte Archives and the Butte Public Library will celebrate Banned Books Week in a joint presentation. Shari Curtis, from the library, will talk about “What is Banned Books Week?” Libraries everywhere celebrate Banned Books Week in September to draw attention to banned and challenged books, how and why books are challenged, and what libraries are doing to protect your freedom to read. Butte author David Abrams will speak about his personal experience with censorship and challenging the actions of a local school board. Cassidy Duddy and Vivienne Andersen, two interns from The Root and The Bloom, will read two selections from the top ten banned books for last year, I am Jazz and Tango makes Three.
The presentation will begin at noon and run about an hour. Guests are encouraged to bring a sack lunch. Coffee and water will be provided.
Brown Bag Lunches are held the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month.
