September 27, 2011
Time:7-8 p.m.
Description:Assistant Director and Curator for Academic Programs Danielle Brune Sigler leads a tour of the exhibition "Banned, Burned, Seized, and Censored."

How did hundreds of thousands of books, pictures, plays and magazines come to be banned, burned, seized and censored in the span of less than 30 years? This exhibition reveals the rarely seen "machinery" of censorship in the United States between the two world wars. Using tactics from extralegal intimidation to federal prosecution, censors from the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, New England's Watch and Ward Society, the Post Office Department and the Treasury Department waged war on "objectionable" literature. Larger-than-life personalities battled publicly over obscenity, "clean books" and freedom of expression while writers, agents and publishers attempted to navigate the increasingly complex world of American censorship.
