On Saturday, Sept. 24, 2011, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Fayetteville‘s yUUth Group will have a table set up at the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market to kick-off National Banned Books Week with a Banned Book Virtual Read-Out.

The yUUth will have a selection of Banned Books available to read, or you can bring your own (books that have been banned include the dictionary, Brave New World, 1984, Gone with the Wind, and more). Find a passage from one of these books that appeals to you, and we will record your two-minute “read-out” then upload it to the Banned Book Virtual Read-out YouTube channel. Please join us.

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. The celebration spotlights the dangers of censorship and promotes free and open access to information.
