Banned Book Week, 2017

"Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular."  ALA

Our controversial topics display will remain throughout the 2017 fall semester.  It highlights new books, DVDs and databases on  a variety of current and controversial topics. These items support learning about current world events and provide material to argue a side or persuade readers.  These resources will help you with your writing assignments for many classes, particularly English 111 assignments.
