Banned Books Week kicks off at Saint Mary's College

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Monday kicked off Banned Books Week at Saint Mary's College.

Every day this week, the school's library will host readers who will read excerpts from banned books of their choice.

Each of this week's readings is expected to last 10 minutes.

Some of the literature includes "To Kill a Mockingbird", "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" and “The Lord of The Rings,” and believe it or not –- Stephanie Meyer’s “Twilight”.
