Event description
A slightly raucous variety show celebrating the right to read whatever we please!

About this Event

In conjunction with the American Library Association’s Banned Books Week, and presented with PEN America, the Banned Books Bash is a fun reminder that books need champions, and libraries feed democracy.

Join us for a thoughtful (yet indignant) variety show celebrating the freedom to read!

Hosted by Evan Narcisse, writer for Marvel’s Black Panther Series.

Featuring:

  • An homage to Toni Morrison with Dr. Jennifer Wilks
  • Drag Queen Storytime with Ms. Anne Thrope
  • The Crackdown on Comics with Michael Conrad
  • A Toast to Rabble Rouser Molly Ivins with The Texas Observer

Plus!

  • Banned songs by Ukuladies and the Tramps
  • Banned books poems by Typewriter Rodeo
  • Banned books trivia & prizes

$15 tickets include 1 drink & light bites. Proceeds benefit The Library Foundation, which supports the Austin Public Library through fundraising and advocacy.
