Another invitation for all of us. Yippee! This free New York event, below, is part of Banned Books Week.
Who: Judy Blume, Deborah Hautzig, Robert Lipsyte, Walter Dean Myers, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Peter Sís, and Rita Williams-Garcia.
What: Reading from banned and challenged works for children.
When: Thursday, Sept. 29, at 6 p.m.
Where: Donnell Library Center Auditorium, 20 W. 53rd St., NYC., 212.621.0619.
The artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese created a site-specific installation, "Free Speech Zone," at Donnell (running through Oct. 3), and they will be talking prior to the authors' presentations.
Always call ahead to make sure any event is proceeding as planned.
Thank you to Fran Manushkin & Susan Kuklin (Co-chairs, PEN Children’s/Young Adult Committee) for sending along the reminder.
