In Suffolk, take part in a unique experience combining art and books. The Underground Art Show is happening Saturday, Sept. 29 at the North Suffolk Library from 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
The staff is asking participants of all ages to create a piece of art based on a banned book. This project is aimed to educate the public about intellectual freedom and censorship issues during Banned Books Week.
They also hope to get people thinking about how things would be if banning books was a normal practice and libraries were forced to be radical.
“Equal access to books is very important and like I said it’s an annual celebration of the freedom to read. We really want to highlight books that have been challenged throughout the world,” said event organizer Angie Sumner.
