For the 26th celebration of Banned Books Week, the American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom, McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum and the Newberry Library are sponsoring a Banned Books Week Read-Out!, which will be held Saturday, September 29, 2007 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., at Pioneer Plaza (located at Michigan Ave. and the Chicago River). Admission is FREE and given its location—off Michigan Ave—we expect hundreds, if not thousands of people will be in attendance.
As a way to promote the event locally, we created a Chicago Transit Authority ad that can be found on the Red and Blue line trains. If you are in Chicago and ride the Red or Blue line, keep an eye out for it!

The ad already has been mentioned on a major national blog!
Also, if you would like to help promote the event on your Web site and/or blog, please feel free to do so. You may use a banner version of the ad, a button or the original at http://www.ilovelibraries.org/news/bbw/ctaad.pdf.
