You should never judge a book by it’s cover, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be well designed!
This year Scranton Reads has selected The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, an often banned book in many community around the country. We are asking you to read the selected book or your favorite banned book and to design a book cover based on your interpretation.
Visit The Office of Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association for more information on Banned Books Week at: http://www.ala.org/bbooks and for a list of frequently banned books.
All artistic mediums are welcome. Deadline for submission is October 1, 2015.
All artwork will be judged by attendees at the Scranton Reads kick off event, The Banned Books Read Aloud, on Saturday, October 3rd at the 2 pm at the Albright Memorial Library.
Prizes will be awarded to the crowd favorite and most creative.
