These are the answers from HSU students, faculty and staff who participated in the Banned Book Read-Out when asked the question: "Why is it important to read banned books?"
Why is it important to read banned books?
|it's important to read all books; knowledge = power|
|to learn cultural and societal values that went against the power of the day|
|expand your kind, read all books, especially the banned ones|
|they've got the best material!|
|it's important to read…period. We shouldn't suppress thought or the written word|
|because our written stories are all that will be left of us someday, history isn't subjective|
|because no one person or group of people should be allowed to restrict the uncomfortable, inconvenient or revealing speech of another|
|educate and learn from experiences that may be uncomfortable so that we can make educated decisions ourselves|
