Students and Staff Celebrate Banned Books Week

Arts & Entertainment

Banned Books Week is Sept 27 – Oct 3. In many cases, books have been banned due to political, moral, or religious objections to the content. The American Library Association advocates for free access to material and condemns them censorship of literature. To celebrate, a collection of students and staff from the Seminole campus and special guest Elin Tate from Hernando County Libraries are featured below talking about some famous banned book titles. Christina Blackman, Digital Arts Instructor, produced the videos.
