Freadom: Celebrating Our Right to Read! Join the ACLU of Wisconsin, Public House Queer Tuesdays, and Woodland Pattern Book Center to recognize Banned Books Week!


We'll be reading from Banned Books at the Riverwest Public House, listening to live spoken word from Milwaukee area creatives, playing a wicked game of QueerTuesdayTrivia, & enjoying great music, friends, and fun.

Wanna dress up as your favorite banned book character? Go for it! (keep it classy friends, this is a family friendly program) 

As if that weren't enough to get geeked about, we're very excited to unveil the "censorship-themed" drink special on the menu this year!

 

You can also find out about Banned Books Week events happening around the country at www.bannedbooksweek.org/events. If you have an event happening in your Wisconsin community, please submit the information to the national website and we will mention it with other media coverage of the week.

Join the discussion about banned books in Wisconsin on the "I Read Banned Books - Wisconsin" Facebook group.


Thanks to event partners and sponsors: Public House, Woodland Pattern Book Center, Art Night Books and Lost World of Wonders, Milwaukee's largest (and Emilio's fave) comic book store.
