    * Warwick Cafe Reading Project:  new books are in your favorite local cafes!  To extend Banned Books Week through the season, the Warwick Cafe Reading Project selections are drawn from the list of the most frequently challenged and banned books of 2017 (and one from 2015), as reported to the American Library Association's Office of Intellectual Freedom.  Look for copies of The Kite Runner, And Tango Makes Three, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and To Kill A Mockingbird.  Read, enjoy and discuss them, pass them to friends...and please return them to one of the participating cafes so that others may try them, too.
