Banned Books Week 2014 is upon us…

Do your part to defend your freedom to read. Educate yourself on the issues and remain aware. Censorship affects all of us!

Make sure to join us in the Library’s RRR Room at noon every day this week for short readings from the talented members of our Theater Department. Reyn Afaga read an excerpt from “Tropic of Cancer” yesterday, and it was an incredibly lively and engaging performance. You can watch his reading here (part 1) and here (part 2).

-Here’s a short clip of Dav Pilkey, the creator of Captain Underpants, one of the most challenged books in the past couple years, discussing the topic of book banning.

-If you enjoy comics, read this interesting article about comics and their role in Banned Books Week.

Student Spotlight: Sonny Sanchez

10320259_572515189529096_5524503656771064363_nMeet Sonny Sanchez, the brilliant designer of our blog’s header. Sonny has been a student at Leeward CC since the Summer of 2012 and will be receiving his Associate’s in Digital Media at the end of the Fall 2014 semester. Following his graduation from Leeward CC, Sonny plans to continue taking Digital Media classes at UHWO. Though he’s sad to leave Leeward CC, which he refers to as “LCC, Life Changing College”, Sonny is excited for the future.

And it looks like Sonny will have quite the future! At his young age, he has already started a clothing line (Bad Accents Clothing) featuring characters he has created. He aspires to have a physical retail location that showcases a more diverse collection of products…and that doubles as a safe place where anyone can come to learn how to draw, free of charge but full of inspiration! Take a look at all that he’s accomplished, and be sure to show your support!
