In celebration of Banned Books Week, Academy of Arts and Academics students will read from one of 2015’s most challenged books, Beyond Magenta: Transgender Teens Speak Out by Susan Kuklin, on the steps of Springfield City Hall. This year’s banned books theme is diversity, and Springfield Library Manager Emily Davis says the nonfiction work was chosen to commemorate both diversity and teens. 

“It’s important for people to realize that reading is a right,” Davis says. “If people are aware that book challenges are happening, then they can be prepared for those challenges.” 

A book challenge “is an attempt to remove or restrict materials, based upon the objections of a person or group,” according to the American Library Association (ALA). A ban is when they are removed.

Books are still challenged today and an estimate by the ALA’s Office for Intellectual Freedom calculates that half of banned books are written by “authors of color,” or are about issues involving diverse communities.

When books are challenged, the challenge has to go through a formal process. Davis says one of the goals of the library is “to provide diverse books for everybody. It’s not very often that books are [banned] from the library.” The last time someone challenged a Springfield library book was in the ’80s or ’90s, she says. 

The Banned Book Read-Out is free and open to the public. Davis says that when people try to ban books, “we want to make sure that doesn’t happen.”

The Banned Book Read-Out is from noon-4 pm, Friday, Sept. 30, at the Springfield City Hall lobby, 225 5th St.; FREE.  — Corinne Boyer

I know all you outré kids out there think you’ve really happened onto something with the deep retro cool of vinyl and all, but what you fail to understand is that vinyl, back in the day, was the primary mode of musical delivery, and so it wasn’t just an aural preference but a complete way of life: Bands released singles exclusively to the radio, and if something caught your ear you simply had to wait around until the deejay cued it up again, and then, on record release day (Tuesdays!), you had to take your milk money and go buy the record, rush home and sit in your room and listen to the damn thing, lifting the needle backward again and again. 

Few bands better represent the late stages of this pre-digital vinyl era than Def Leppard (pictured), whose 1983 single “Photograph” (off the RIAA Diamond-certified album Pyromania) — a near-perfect pop confection mixing British new metal with juicy bubblegum hooks — took FM radio, and hence the adolescent world, by storm. The band has never received the respect they deserve for sheer likability of their early output, and then there’s REO Speedwagon, another vinyl-era band that gets oodles of credit, and not a little derision, for their adherence to mild likability. 

At first, the coupling of these bands in one live show fried my circuits, but the more I think about it, the more sense it makes: There’s barely half a step’s difference between “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and “Keep on Loving You.” Put these two legendary AOL stalwarts together, and you’ve got a viable two-thirds of a K-TEL compilation of the “Rockin’ ‘80s” (where’s Boston when you need them?) — not to mention a highly lucrative draw for the mid-life crisis Friday night blues crowd. (Cheaper solution: a bottle of Jack Daniels and Rush’s Moving Pictures on perpetual repeat.)

Def Leppard and REO Speedwagon play 7 pm Friday, Sept. 30, at Matthew Knight Area; $167-$211, tickets at matthewknight.arenaeugene.com. — Rick Levin

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
