Banned Books Week is currently underway, and we're highlighting a selection of your creative events, displays, social media posts and more. Let us know some of the unusual ways your bookstore or library is celebrating.
|Burke's Books: Fahrenheit 451|
Burke's Book Store, Memphis, Tenn.: "Our theme is Fahrenheit 451, the dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury that presents a future American society where books are outlawed and "firemen" burn any that are found. If you haven't read it, read it now! (Fun fact: that's author Larry Brown's fireman's suit in the display.)"
Maria's Bookshop, Durango, Colo.: "Come and check out Suzy's great window displays for Banned Books Week 2017." Also hosting several events, including "Special Banned Books Week Storytime--No-No’s Your Kids Should Read"
|DIESEL Brentwood: "Only problem is people keep asking if our wall is falling down."|
Village Books, Bellingham, Wash.: "Banned Books Week continues: Today's staff picks are from booksellers Lauren, Danna and co-owner Kelly E.! We hope you'll join us on the main floor of our Fairhaven store for an open-mic style read-in! Bring your favorite banned or challenged book or choose from those we have on hand...."
