This year, The Minor Bird will be a part of bringing a Banned Book Event to Chatham University’s campus. This Banned Book Event is Chatham’s way of recognizing and celebrating banned books. For fall 2013, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi was chosen as the focal point of the event. Professor Wayne Wise will be our guest speaker, and will talk about graphic novels, comics, banned books, and especially Persepolis to Chatham audiences. Following his talk will be a viewing of the film adaptation of Persepolis.
Please be sure to join us for great food, company, and to celebrate banned books on Thursday, September 26th, at 5:00PM in Mellon Board Room for Prof. Wayne Wise’s talk, and then again at 6:00PM in the Eddy Theater to watch Persepolis. Hope to see you there!
