Hosted by Shaun Manning, local author and co-owner of Booksweet, this monthly conversation for teens and adults explores the themes, characters, cultural context, and personal resonance of books banned from public school libraries and curriculums in the United States.

Booksweet will donate 10% of the profits from Banned Book Club reads to the ACLU as part of our annual Banned Books Week celebrations in September.

Join us on Friday, July 15 from 8-9 pm at Booksweet to discuss The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sheman Alexie. The American Library Association reports that this book has been challenged, banned, and restricted for “language and sexual content.”
