Banned Books and Booze!

September 19, 2012

Banned Books and Booze posterBanned Books Week (September 30 – October 6, 2012) celebrates the freedom to choose and the freedom to  express one’s opinion even if that opinion might be considered unorthodox or unpopular.  It also stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those unorthodox or unpopular viewpoints to all who wish to read them.

There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them. ~ Ray Bradbury

We’re celebrating the right to read a little early with an Eat, Drink and be Literary event! Please join us for the whisky tasting fundraiser for the library. We only have 25 spaces left – online registration is required. Registration is $30/person or $50/couple. You may pay by PayPal until Tuesday, September 25, or by check (cash at the door ONLY if you have pre-registered).

In addition to the marvelous Glenfiddich whisky tasting (12 – 21 years) and the fabulous food from Canadian Honker Event Center (Ramada Inn), there will be a wide range of silent auction items from a discovery flight at the Rochester airport to art prints, to Scottish books and great spirits. And remember all registrants are entered into the grand prize drawings from Glenfiddich. Only those people attending this event receive special pricing on additional whiskies at Andy’s Crossroads.
