Banned Books Cafe 2

Freedom to Read Week runs Feb. 22-28 this year. To commemorate the occasion, Regina Public Library writer-in-residence Arthur Slade has organized a selection of readings from books that have been challenged at various times on various grounds in Canada.

Helping him out will be several celebrity readers including CBC’s Jill Morgan, Gord Barnes of Amnesty International, and former RPL writers-in-residence Gail Bowen, Kelley Jo Burke and Edward Willett.

Banned Books Cafe 2 goes Wednesday, Feb. 25 at the RPL Theatre at 7 p.m. You can register for the event, plus find more information, on the RPL website.
