Library Reveals New Banned Books Cards

KSAL StaffSeptember 22, 2014

The Lawrence Public Library has unveiled its third edition of trading cards that feature artwork inspired by censured books.

47 artists submitted works. The seven winners were chosen by a panel of judges and announced Thursday. All submissions will be available in the library during national Banned Books Week, which started Sunday and ends Saturday.

During those days, the library will release one trading card a day to the public for free.

The books represented on the cards include Ernest Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea,” Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and Ken Kesey’s “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

Following Banned Books Week, the library will have the 2014 deck available for purchase online.
