The Hunger Games Trilogy, The Harry Potter Series, The Great Gatsby and A Farewell to Arms all have something in common – they are banned books. Come and learn why, and get involved in the discussion at “Banned… Now and Then.” Facilitators will present these four books in lively interactive dialogues which will cover some of their key messages and why they were banned. Guests are encouraged to bring a “brown bag” lunch and beverages and delicious desserts will be served.

Presented by The West Palm Beach Library Foundation, this special event is part of Banned and Burned: Literary Censorship and the Loss of Freedom, an emotional and unforgettable series of events that will feature the traveling exhibition, Fighting the Fires of Hate: America and the Nazi Book Burnings from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. The eight-week presentation provides a vivid look at the first steps the Nazis took to suppress freedom of expression, and the strong response from the United States.
