AIR DATE: September 28, 2011

Slaughterhouse-FiveHuckleberry Finn.  Bridge to TerabithiaHarry Potter.  What do they have in common?  They're all books that have been banned or censored.  How are books still banned today?  Why are they banned?  And how has censorship of literature changed over the years?  Authors and other city luminaries read from banned books, and discuss the power of the censored word.
 
For the American Library Association's Banned Books Week, speakers will read from censored works on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Clark County Library Theater.  The event is sponsored by the ACLU of Nevada, the Vegas Valley Book Festival, UNLV's Black Mountain Institute, and the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District.
 
GUESTS
Andrew Kiraly, author, Crit; editor, Desert Companion
Maile Chapman, author, Your Presence is Requested at Suvanto
Jeanne Goodrich, Exec Dir, Las Vegas-Clark County Library Dist

Andrew Kilraly, one of the commenters for the banned books program, was once photographed on the cover of LV City Life burning a novel. How can he possibly have been a guest on this?
