Banned Book Club: The Outsiders In-Person

We're celebrating the freedom to read by discussing the banned book The Outsiders by S. E Hinton. We will discuss not only the book itself, but also the concepts of free speech and censorship as we encounter them in the modern world.

Pick up a copy from the Downtown Library Information Desk. This title is also available as an e-audiobook.


No one ever said life was easy. But Ponyboy is pretty sure that he's got things figured out. He knows that he can count on his brothers, Darry and Sodapop. And he knows that he can count on his friends—true friends who would do anything for him, like Johnny and Two-Bit. But not on much else besides trouble with the Socs, a vicious gang of rich kids whose idea of a good time is beating up on “greasers” like Ponyboy. At least he knows what to expect—until the night someone takes things too far.

This program is part if our civic dialogue series, which includes the Banned Book Club and Let's Talk About It. Programs include:
