Books lovers invited to start bucket list of best books at Stillwater Public Library Sept. 23

MEDIA RELEASE • For Immediate Release

(STILLWATER, OKLA. / Sept. 10, 2013) –The Stillwater Public Library will help readers decide which books to add to their bucket list at a new series beginning Monday, September 23 at 6 p.m.

“There are so many books out there but nobody has time to read them all,” said Scott Freeman, librarian. “’Bucket Books’ is a new series designed to help readers sift through all of the possible titles and learn about the books that truly are must-reads.”

The first program in the series will explore the banned and/or challenged books that are most worthy of a look.  The program is being presented in conjunction with National Banned Books week.

“We have such a great time talking about new book releases each month at ‘The Buzz’ that we wanted to expand our focus throughout the history of the printed page,” said Freeman.  “What better way to start out the new series than to look at books that have fallen under scrutiny and attack over the years?  You might be surprised at some that make the list.”

Each program will last about an hour and consist of the history of books in the particular topic, a look at several noteworthy books, and discussion.  Upcoming programs in the series include Best Horror Titles on October 28 and The Best Books of the Century…So Far on November 25.

The programs are free and open to the public.
