From the Manitoba Writers’ Guild newsletter:

Freedom to Read Banned Books Reading Marathon
February 27, 10 am – 5 pm, Millennium Library
As part of Freedom to Read Week, the Winnipeg Public Library and Manitoba Writers’ Guild present a Reading Marathon of challenged and challenging literature. Exercise your freedom to read from your favourite banned or challenged book! To sign up for one or more 10 minute reading slots, call 986-6779 or email dpilon@winnipeg.ca . Apparently 3:30 – 5:00 is prime available reading time! Volunteers are also needed (in 2-3 hour shifts) to help the event run smoothly and answer questions from the public. Contact info@mbwriter.mb.ca if you are interested in helping out at the event.
