Please make plans to attend a Reception for the exhibition 'Banned Books, Banished Writers and Historic Bonfires: Tales from the Rare Book Collection.' on Wednesday September 30th from 4 to 6 p.m on the lower level of Hagerty Library. In conjunction with ALA's Banned Books Week September 26 - October 3rd ! This exhibition, curated by Laurie Rizzo, displays written works that have been cause for conflict at one point in time or another. All the books in the exhibition are from Drexel's Rare Books Collection. Materials chronicle 1700 years of banning, banishment and burnings over ideas so controversial that church and state alike sought to prevent their spread.
