Saturday, October 3 from 10 am – 4 pm
Since the inception of Banned Books Week in 1982, libraries and bookstores throughout the country have staged local read-outs—a continuous reading of banned/challenged books—as part of their activities. Now in its fifth year (2015), readers from around the world can participate in the Banned Books Virtual Read-Out. We are looking for participants who want to proclaim the importance of the freedom to read by being part of our St. Johns County Public Library video that will be featured on a dedicated Banned Books Week Virtual Read-Out YouTube channel. All you have to do is show up and read a small section from one of your favorite banned books!
