Pizza and Pages: Banned Books Week Edition

Join us for Pizza and Pages:  Banned Books Week Edition.  Grades 5 and up.  Sign-up required HERE.

The American Library Association acknowledges Banned Books Week from September 26-October 2nd.   Books are challenged for a variety of reasons in public libraries, schools, and other settings.  You have probably read a book that has been challenged and didn't even know it.  Have you read Where's WaldoLittle Red Riding Hood?  Both have been challenged!!  For this program, we challenge you to read a banned or challenged book of your choice.  Some options are listed below.  Come ready to talk about your banned book, learn more about your freedom to read, and enjoy pizza!
