Banned Book Slam – Pine Bluffs Branch Library
September 26, 2017 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Get your snapping fingers ready and meet up with your friends at the “Cooney Roost,” the beatnik word for the library! Bring your favorite banned or challenged book (a few examples are The Kite Runner, To Kill a Mockingbird, Captain Underpants, Harry Potter…) and read aloud a few lines for the other hipsters to enjoy. If you want to be brave, bring your own written poem to share for our slam—similar to the poetry slams of the ‘60s! We will also create some cool secret book safes, enjoy drinks donated by Something on the Way, and munch walking tacos. Dressing in black or a groovy outfit is optional (but encouraged!). For more information or more examples of banned and challenged books, call the Pine Bluffs Branch Library at 307.245.3646. Grades 7-12
