The University of Tulsa’s Department of Special Collections and University archives is proud to announce the opening of our new exhibit showcasing banned and challenged children’s books. The exhibit was designed and implemented by our graduate assistants Kristina Rosenthal and James Tindle. The posters and fliers advertising this exhibit were designed by Brancen Gregory. Brancen is one of our student workers here at Special Collections and has shown his great talent in graphic design. Thanks to his talents we are showcasing these advertisements throughout the buildings on campus.
Over the next 6 weeks we will be posting blogs featuring each book, or genre of books, that are currently on display. So check in next week to hear why Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll has been banned and challenged multiple times throughout the world since its publication in 1865.
Please visit our new exhibit now on display at Special Collections located on the 5th floor of McFarlin Library. We are open Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm.
