Public Reading of I Am Jazz

In celebration of Banned Books Week, the William H. Hannon Library will be hosting a public reading of I Am Jazz, a book about childhood and gender identity that has been challenged due to its "depictions of a transgender child, explicit sex education, language and offensive viewpoints."

Librarians and library staff, who as a rule reject censorship in any form, will be outside the Lair with free giveaways, cookies, and Tshirts (while supplies last). We'll also have a stack of frequently challenged or banned books for you to browse. Please join us!

We will also have extra copies of I Am Jazz on hand if you want to read aloud with us. And we hope you will.

This reading was absolutely wonderful. It's so important to give banned books, especially literature that is written by and for marginalized people, a platform. Thank you for this event!
