Banning books doesn't just come from removing items from libraries or vandalizing books. Some authors face serious backlash in other countries.
One of our display will focus on authors who have books published in English, including print and online journalists, novelists, bloggers, and photojournalists. These authors have been sentenced to or are facing long jail terms, had their travel restricted, faced deportation, had family harassed, been sentenced to death, tortured and/or killed with impunity.
We hope you will stop into the Besse Library this week and take a look at the mural that Ursuline College Undergraduate Art Therapy Students created for Banned and Challenged Book Week. We think it is amazing! pic.twitter.com/DDUQEk4Gi9— Ursuline Library (@UrsulineLibrary) September 24, 2019
