Banned Books Week 2013: Banned Books Week @ Blackwell Library

What We've Been Up To!

For the past two weeks we have been working with our faculty, staff, and administrators to create a series of videos showcasing our amazing Salisbury University people reading from their favorite banned books!  Once finished these segments will be edited together into a variety of finished products - including a video that will be linked from this very guide via the Home tab!  

We had volunteers read from:

  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
  • House of the Spirits
  • A Separate Peace
  • In the Night Kitchen
  • His Dark Materials
  • Bridge to Terabithia
  • The Diary of Anne Frank
  • Kaffir Boy
  • A Time To Kill
  • Common Sense
  • To Kill A Mockingbird
  • Winnie the Pooh
  • Catcher In the Rye
  • Gossip Girl
  • 1984
  • The House at Pooh Corner
  • The Great Gatsby
  • Huckleberry Finn
  • Invisible Man
  • On the Road
  • As I Lay Dying
  • Friday Night Lights
  • Lord of the Flies
  • Lady Chatterley's Lover
  • Harry Potter

A Peek Behind the Scenes!

Working with our faculty, staff, and administrators during this year's Banned Books Week project has been both humbling and inspiring.  To see the dedication SU employees have towards assuring the best for the students at Salisbury University, and their passion behind the rallying cry for intellectural freedom everywhere is truly a wonderful thing.  Below are some of the behind-the-scenes shots taking during many of the tapings!
