10th Annual Banned Books Readout: Belonging on the Shelf 09/29/2022 - 12:15pm to 1:45pm
In a record year for the number of book bannings across the U.S., we gather to celebrate freedom of expression by reading aloud from books that have been challenged. Join the University Library, the Department of Journalism, the Queer Studies Program and the Pride Center for the 10th Annual Banned Books Readout! CSUN Associate Professor of Journalism and First Amendment Scholar Elizabeth Blakey will speak about censorship and belonging. CSUN students in Professor Blakey's J480 History of American News Media class will give dramatic readings. This year Banned Books Readout will feature a presentation by guest speaker Karimah Tennyson-Marsh, "Banned Books Belong in Our Community."
Snacks will be available at the Northridge Center entrance from 12:15 p.m.- 12:30 p.m.. The event is free and everyone is welcome.
