Banned Books Read-Out

HSU Library
Do you know what these books have in common: Captain Underpants (Dav Pilkey), The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian (Sherman Alexie), The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins), Looking for Alaska (John Green), and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (Stephen Chbosky)?
At some public library or school someone wanted to keep these books off the shelves and out of the hands of people and their children. To celebrate the National Banned Book Week, HSU Library and Humboldt Center for Constitutional Rights are hosting a banned books read-out to celebrate the freedom to read.

The event —part of the national Banned Books Week sponsored by the American Library Association—will take place 3-5 p.m.on Sept. 28, 2016 in the Library’s lobby. Interested individuals can register online to guarantee a participation slot.

For ideas on book selection, see ALA’s list of frequently challenged books at:

Alexander Schunka is Professor of Early Modern History at the Friedrich Meinecke Institute of the Freie Universität in Berlin. His doctoral dissertation (2004) at the University of Munich addressed religious migrations in the early modern era. He has taught at the universities of Stuttgart (2004-09) and Erfurt (2009-15). His main research interests focus on the religious and cultural history of early modern Europe (Central Europe, Britain, East-Central Europe as well as the Ottoman Empire). More specifically, his research addresses the history of early modern migrations, the history of natural resources, transcultural encounters between the Ottoman world and Central Europe, and intellectual and religious transfers between English and German Protestants in the 17th and 18th centuries, among other topics. Publications include two monographs (a third monograph is currently in print), a number of edited volumes, about 70 articles in journals and edited volumes (mostly in German and English), and about 80 book reviews.

The Sustainable Futures Speaker Series is presented by the Environment & Community Graduate Program and the Schatz Energy Research Center.
