Banned Books Discussion 2-Nite

At Providence College:

Banned Books Discussion and Reading

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008
7:30 PM
In Lower Davis Hall on the
Providence College Campus

In recognition of the American Library Association’s Banned Books week (September 27th – October 4th) members of the Providence College community will be holding a presentation on the critical issue of literary censorship. Scheduled to speak are Shannon Berndtson and Chris Landry of the Phillips Memorial Library and Dr. John Scanlan of the English Department. The presentation will be followed by a reading of Shel Silverstein’s “A Light in the Attic” and a discussion of the topic at hand. We encourage everyone to join us for this event.

  1. Is it just me, or is hypocritical that Providence College is hosting the banned books events, as the school has banned any performances of The Vagina Monologues, and broadly censors their students’ free speech?
