508-457-2555, ext. 6

Banned Books Week 2011 is the thirtieth annual celebration of the freedom to read. This freedom, not only to choose what we read, but also to select from a full array of possibilities, is firmly rooted in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Intellectual freedom—the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if the information and ideas might be considered unorthodox or unpopular—provides the foundation for Banned Books Week. The Falmouth Public Library will launch the celebration with a return visit of caricature artist Paul Merklein. He will present Famous Authors & Banned Books sketching famous faces from banned books and talking about why some books have been banned. Who will he draw next?  Paul’s unique show combines art, comedy and audience participation.  This program, sponsored by the Falmouth Public Library Trustees is FREE of charge and appropriate for ages 10 and up. Don’t miss “big face” artist Paul Merklein on Saturday, September 24 at 2:00 in the Hermann Foundation Meeting Room.
