Banned Book Week and Special Performance

The annual Banned Books Week, sponsored by the American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom, takes place from September 25 - October 3, but this year we're doing something different!  On Sunday, October 3 at 2:00 we'll be hosting a live reading of excerpts from the top ten most frequently challenged books of 2009 by City Lit Theater Company.  City Lit, a Chicago theater specializing in staged adaptations of literary material, will perform Books on the Chopping Block at special events and libraries all week long.  Glencoe will host the only suburban performance so be sure to not miss it.  It runs 50 minutes and will be followed by a brief discussion.
