UT honors freedom of speech during Oct. 1 Banned Books Week vigil

Read, Know, Speak” is the theme of the 12th annual Banned Books Week Vigil, which will take place Thursday, Oct. 1, on The University of Toledo’s Main Campus.

UT faculty members and students, as well as librarians and authors, will give short presentations from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the second floor of Sullivan Hall. Sullivan Hall is located between Academic House and Horton International House on the west side of campus.
“The battle for the First Amendment is never won,” said Dr. Paulette D. Kilmer, UT professor of communication and one of the organizers of the event. “Every fall, we join with libraries, educational places and civic centers across the nation to recognize the role of reading and thinking freely in our democratic society where everyone matters and knowledge is often the key to making a difference.”
Kilmer and event committee members Dr. Linda Smith, UT senior lecturer in the Honors Program, Brian Hickam, UT assistant professor of library administration, and Elaine Reeves, UT lecturer and information literacy librarian, have met off and on for the past year to coordinate the event.
In the fourth week of September for more than two decades, the American Library Association, the Book Sellers of America and hundreds of other sponsors of Banned Books Week have inspired citizens across the nation to plan events celebrating intellectual freedom.
During UT’s event, banned books, T-shirts, mugs, coupons and other items will be given as door prizes throughout the day.
Benefactors of the free, public event are the Society of Professional Journalists, the University Honors Program, The Independent Collegian, University Libraries, UT Department of Communication, UT English Department, and the UT Theatre and Film Department.
Sponsors who contributed door prizes and food include Barry Bagels, Curb’s Candle Co., Dunkin’ Doughnuts, Glacity Theatre Collective, People Called Women, Rite Aid Pharmacy at Westgate, Toledo Free Press, UT Bookstore, UT Business Technology, UT Career Services, UT-MUO Federal Credit Union, UT Starbucks, and UT Theatre and Film Department.
