The September Black Stories Matter Book Club meeting will celebrate Banned Books Week (September 26 - October 2) by discussing The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison.

An initiative of the American Library Association (ALA), Banned Books Week (September 27 to October 3, 2020) celebrates libraries as proponents of intellectual freedom. Each year, the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom compiles a list that includes current and past attempts to censor books in schools and libraries. Toni Morrison, who has been a target of censorship for years, has made both the “Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2020” and the “Top 100 Most Banned and Challenged Books: 2010-2019” lists.

Free copies of the book will be given to registrants on a first come first served basis while supplies last. The physical book is available for checkout from the Library and the eBook version is available for checkout from Overdrive
