Volunteer to Read at the Banned Books Week Virtual Read-out

Free Your Mind graphic

Fight censorship and make your favorite banned book be heard! Join us in celebrating Banned Books Weekby volunteering to be recorded reading a banned book. We welcome all ASU students, faculty and staff!

How Does It Work?
Each participant will read from their choice of book for around two minutes. Belk Library will record the reading and post the video to both the ASU iTunes U channel as well as the American Library Association's YouTube channel. Your video will appear with videos of people from across the country.

When, Where, How?!
Recordings will be done in Belk Library room 156 (one of the small group study rooms) on Tuesday, September 27 between 2:00 and 4:00. Drop by any time to participate.

Choose any banned book you like. These lists may help you decide:

You can find most of these titles in the ASU library by searching the catalog. We will also have a small collection of banned titles available in the room where the recordings are done.

If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Bird at 262-2085 or Geri Purpur at 262-6903.
