Banned Books Mini-Retreat

August 6, 2022



The Banned Books Mini-Retreat is an annual examination of literature that organizations have tried to suppress.

The Banned Books Mini-Retreat will be on August 6, 2022, on Zoom. We'll discuss Art Spiegelman's novel Maus (volumes 1 and 2), the only graphic novel to win a Pulitzer Prize. The school board of McMinn County, Tennessee recently voted unanimously to remove Maus from its schools.

In recent years during the Banned Books Mini-Retreat, we've enjoyed discussions of book, and sometimes film, versions of Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm, Native SonLord of the Flies, All Quiet on the Western Front, and Othello.
