Kalamazoo, MI –

To celebrate Banned Books Week, Kalamazoo Public Library and the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan Southwestern Branch are sponsoring a Banned Books Week Art Contest. The ACLU will award a grand prize of $150 to the show winner.

Artists of all ages are invited to create original art for the contest inspired by one of the following five frequently challenged books.

Entries should be delivered to KPL on Wednesday, September 30, or Thursday, October 1, from 9 am - 9 pm. (Please note that the earlier submission date of September 25 published in the Library LINK newsletter was incorrect.) 

Art contest winners will be announced Friday, October 2, 6-8 pm, during the Art Hop at Kalamazoo Public Library. All submitted art work will be displayed at Kalamazoo Public Library from October 3-9.

The Art Hop on October 2 will also include a Banned Books Read-out, featuring local celebrities Bonnie Jo Campbell, Garrard McLeod, Lori Moore, Keith Thompson, and Von Washington.
