Banned Books Trading Cards

3 October 2012

From the Lawrence (Kansas) Public Library:

It’s Banned Books Week and we are celebrating the freedom to read in a unique way! Each day this week (Sept 30 – Oct 6), you can stop by either Lawrence Public Library or the Lawrence Arts Center and collect a limited edition Banned Book Trading Card. There’s one for every day of the week! Each card was created by a local artist and inspired by a banned book or author. Our call for artists resulted in 46 entries, all of which are on display in the library lobby this week. You can also view many of them in our online exhibit.
