Carpe Librum Book Club -- The Bluest Eye

Celebrate Banned Books Week with the Carpe Librum Book Club as we discuss Toni Morrison's The Bluest Eye. According to the American Library Association, Morrison's 1970 debut was the third most challenged book of 2022, with 73 different challenges being brought against it in schools and libraries around the country. Join us for a discussion about this classic and other banned books at our monthly meeting. Copies of the book will be available for check-out at the circulation desk beginning September 1st.

New members are always welcome to join the Carpe Librum group! Please contact Kelly McKewin at kmckewin [at] with any questions.
