In honor of the First Amendment, the ACLU of Louisiana will host Shreveport's 2nd public celebration of freedom of expression on Sunday January 22, 2012, from 5:00-8:00 pm.
The "Banned in America" celebration will be held at
The Philadelphia Center
2020 Centenary Blvd.
The event, free and open to the public, will feature readings, songs, poetry and displays of works that have been banned or challenged around the United States, as well as messages from community members and those dedicated to the freedom of speech and expression.
Banned Books Week has been observed annually during the last week of September since 1982. The ACLU of Louisiana has sponsored a celebration of the freedom to read in New Orleans for over a decade. This is the first such event in Louisiana held outside of New Orleans, and is made possible by the generous support of the Beaird Family Foundation.
