Banned Book week is coming.
But it's not a new phenomenon, nor is it just books! Come visit our peep-show case and see what's inside.
All of the titles in the case represent a story, a recording, or a person that has been challenged in some way over time. Some people were arrested, others banned from telling their stories through music. Other stories have raised concern for nearly a millennium.
The list includes the author (performers & composers are authors too!), the title, and the call number from the UWM Music Library collection. A link to the pdf is at the bottom of the page.
Here are a few examples of what you'll see.
