Another Banned Books Blast!
Thanks to everyone who came out Thursday, October 2, for our annual Banned Books Bash. Emcees Owen and Jodi Egerton were utterly charming and incisive hosts. Our Badgerdog Teaching Artists gave shocking, hilarious, and subversive readings from 9 banned or challenged books (1984, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, An Abundance of Katherines, The Catcher in the Rye, Cat's Cradle, The Hunger Games, The Satanic Verses, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and To Kill a Mockingbird). We loved connecting with long-time members and meeting new friends. Thanks for supporting the Library Foundation, the Austin Public Library, and the freedom to read!
