Sacramento Theatre Company, library celebrate ‘Banned Book Week’

The Sacramento Theatre Company and the Sacramento Public Library are teaming up for a celebration of Banned Book Week, with a Tuesday performance of scenes from the theater troupe’s upcoming presentation of “The Grapes of Wrath.”

The free, 7 p.m. event at the central library, 828 I St., will include a panel discussion of John Steinbeck’s novel, the stage adaptation of it and the censorship of the book in 1939.

Book publishers and the American Library Association celebrate Banned Book Week from Sept. 21 to Sept. 27 to draw attention to problems of censorship.

The Sacramento Theatre Company’s run of “Grapes of Wrath” starts Oct 1.
