It's Banned Book Week! To celebrate, we're returning to Six Bridges Brewing for a Banned Book Fair!
Do you miss school book fairs? Well, we do! Join us on September 24th for our Banned Book, Book Fair! Peruse a selection of banned books while enjoying a locally brewed beer! It's going to be great fun, and we guarantee a great conversation.
If this nation is to be wise as well as strong, if we are to achieve our destiny, then we need more new ideas for more wise men reading more good books in more public libraries. These libraries should be open to all—except the censor. We must know all the facts and hear all the alternatives and listen to all the criticisms. Let us welcome controversial books and controversial authors. For the Bill of Rights is the guardian of our security as well as our liberty.
