Readers share passages from favorite books during VC/UHV Library’s Banned Books Week Read-Out

Ann Kapp, Victoria College history assistant professor, reads an excerpt from “Like Water for Chocolate” by Mexican novelist Laura Esquivel as part of the VC/UHV Library’s Banned Books Week Read-Out. According to Amanda Breu, VC/UHV Library’s instruction and outreach librarian, many new and classic books are banned or challenged because of language, sexual content, or objectionable material. Joining Kapp in sharing book excerpts at Thursday’s Read-Out were Olivia Davis, reading “The Perks of Being a Wallflower;” Allison Armstrong, reading “Captain Underpants;” UHV President Dr. Phil Castille, reading “God’s Little Acre;” Sam Bell, reading “And Tango Makes Three;” Blake Jacobusse, reading “Fifty Shades of Grey;” Victoria Brieske, reading “Charlotte’s Web;” Dayna Williams-Capone, reading “Go Ask Alice;” and Lisa Devries, reading “The Glass Castle.” Dr. Jeff Sartain, director of the English Program and assistant professor of English at UHV, was the keynote speaker.
