BANNED BOOKS WEEK IS HERE!
September 27 - October 3 is Banned Books Week. The American Library Association explains: "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 of all types –- in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular."
We are celebrating the Freedom to Read here in Deerfield by hosting a mini-trivia competition. On our Facebook page ("LIKE" us now if you haven't already!), we will be posting summaries of frequently challenged books (perhaps more than one per day!). The first person to guess the correct author and title in the comments will be entered in a drawing which will take place at the end of the week.
HARPER LEE DOCUMENTARY EVENT
Join us on Thursday, October 15th at 6:30 p.m. to explore the phenomenon behind "To Kill a Mockingbird" and the mysterious life of its author through a viewing of "American Masters: Harper Lee", followed by a discussion led by Elizabeth Zanichkowsky, associate professor of English at UW-Waukesha.
As a special treat, we will be giving away a very fabulous prize at this event, but YOU MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN. Hope to see you here!
