The Banned Books Initiative partner offices host reading groups throughout the year, each focusing on a different banned or frequently challenged book. Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 25, at 3 p.m. for the October reading. We will be discussing All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson (copies available through Vanderbilt’s libraries) in the Central Library Poetry Room (612A).
