Books in a Bar: Eclectic Reads

Tuesday, September 11th, 7-9 pm at Nighttown

Join us for a glass of wine or dinner and a discussion of The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (Back Bay Books). Please note this discussion is meeting on Tuesday evening!

In honor of Banned Book Week (September 23-29)

An instant bestseller upon its publication in 1951, The Catcher in the Rye is the classic mid-century coming-of-age story.

“Perhaps the most contested book in recent history, The Catcher in the Rye was removed from schools, challenged by parents, and generally loathed by educational authorities beginning less than a decade after publication. In 1982, school libraries in Morris, Manitoba removed the book because it violated district guidelines covering ‘excess vulgar language, sexual scenes, things concerning moral issues, excessive violence, and anything dealing with the occult.’ Or, as a Dorchester District 2 school board member in Summerville, South Carolina said more succinctly in 2001 because it ‘is a filthy, filthy book.’ Apparently, 65 million readers in over thirty languages can be wrong.”
