Program Description

Event Details

Join us for our first Blackstone Banned Book Club meeting! This group meets the first Tuesday of every month to have a non-judgemental, civil discussion of various titles that are being challenged and banned, both locally and nationally. The purpose of this book club is to simultaneously discuss these titles, and to bring awareness to the rapid rise of book challenges and bans.

For our first meeting, we will be discussing the semi-autobiographical graphic novel Flamer by Mike Curato. This 2022 Nutmeg Award nominee chronicles the author's journey of self discovery at summer camp during his break before entering high school. Copies will be available for pickup at the library in early August.

Registration is required to attend this IN PERSON event.

The Blackstone Library has a limited number of copies of these titles available for book club participants. If you are interested in obtaining a library copy, please call us at (203) 488-1441 ext. 318 or email Copies are first come, first served.
