Event Details

Celebrations will culminate on Friday, September 29th from 5-7pm when The Hickory Stick Bookshop will have a Banned Books Week 2017 fREADom Party, featuring readings and artwork from local students and educators, and themed refreshments. Prizes will be awarded at the party, and the winning title for “Washington’s Favorite Banned Book” will be announced.

For over 30 years, since its inception in 1982, Banned Books Week has reminded us that while not every book is intended for every reader, each of us has the right to decide for ourselves what to read, listen to or view. Thousands of bookstores and libraries across the country will celebrate the freedom to read by participating in special events, exhibits, and read-outs that showcase books that have been banned or challenged.

“Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.” –Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about this event, please call (860) 868-0525.
