   Today the Thespian Society of RHS is hosting a readers theater performance of an excerpt from the novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. The performance is being held in the library to shine a light on “Banned Book Week”, which is the yearly celebration of the freedom to read. Several books over the years have been banned by schools such as The Great Gatsby, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Lord of the Flies, The Grapes of Wrath, The Color Purple, Animal Farm, Of Mice and Men, Harry Potter, and many more. Many librarians, journalists, publishers, and authors celebrate this week by reading these books and speaking out against the banning of literature. If you would like to take a stand against the restricting of books within society, then stop by the banned books table set up in the RHS library.
