COYL Organizes Banned Book Reading
The Coalition of Youth Librarians, led by SILS master’s student Holly Broman, organized a Banned Book Reading by SILS students and faculty in front of Manning Hall on September 27. SILS Dean Gary Marchionini kicked off the event, reading a selection from Beyond Magenta:Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin. Other books read during the two-hour celebration of freedom speech included The Kite Runner, Tango Makes Three, and Paint Me Like I Am. The event was part of UNC’s First Amendment Day, coordinated by the UNC Center for Media Law and Policy and celebrated during National Banned Books Week. Visit the SILS flickr album for more photos.
