Set your alarm early for Sunday, October 6 when the latest edition of “Crossroads” tackles the topic of religious banned books.
Program host Rev. Patrick J. Lynch, SJ, interviews Canisius Reference Librarian and Archivist Kathleen M. Delaney about the origins of Banned Books Week, an annual awareness campaign promoted by the American Library Association. She’ll also provide examples of religious banned books, past U.S. court challenges, and the required approval of class texts from the Canisius president up until the 1970s.
“Crossroads” is a monthly radio program produced by the Network of Religious Communities and hosted by Father Lynch, professor emeritus of religious studies and theology. It airs on the first Sunday of each month at 6:00 a.m. on MIX-96 (96.1 FM) and at 6:30 a.m. on JACK-FM (92.9).
If you miss the Sunday, October 6 broadcast, you can catch it starting Monday, October 7 on the Canisius SoundCloud.
