Uncensored Voices

Have I mentioned that I really like my Lit professor? I love reading and writing and debating, and my Lit class is all full of those things.

Next week is Banned Book Week. My Lit prof says I can get EXTRA CREDIT for attending the UNCENSORED VOICES program next Tuesday.

I think I'd have attended anyway - it looks like a good and edgy program!

Some of the speakers will be Charles Bock (who wrote Beautiful Children), Bob Brown, who publishes the Review-Journal, Andrew Kiraly, Editor of KNPR's Desert Companion, political columnist Steve Sebelius, Laura Henkel who owns the Sin City Gallery, and our very own Jeanne Goodrich, who is the Library's Executive Director.

They'll be doing readings and performances. I hope they'll also do some discussion!

Working in the library, I hear a lot about the freedom to read. Librarians are really passionate on the topic. The folks who will be on the panel look like they'll all be equally passionate, and I want to watch the sparks fly!

Besides, the Nevada Repertory Dance Theater is making a special appearance. I love them!
