Banned Books? Carol A? We're there!

Re: Making the Banned

If you happen to be downtown and looking for something to do before happy hour, the ACLU is hosting a Banned Books Week event at the South Texas School of Law at 4:30 p.m. Notable Houstonians, including City Councilwoman Carol Alvarado, will be reading from selected banned and restricted books.

Alvarado's staffers aren't sure what she's reading today, but confirm that she'll be there 'round 5 p.m. Here's hoping she -- or at least someone -- offers up an excerpt from The Earth, My Butt and Other Big Round Things. — Steven Devadanam
