Jerry Rapier of the Plan-B Theatre Company in Salt Lake City, UT has taken a new approach to fundraising this year. He will be presenting, And the Banned Played On, a showcase of literary works that have been banned by schools, public libraries and bookstores around the world – Harry Potter included.
“When people realize that something close to them has been banned by someone else, it changes the whole mind-set about the process of telling someone they can’t read something,” says Rapier. “If I’m going to question one piece, I have to be open to somebody questioning something that I hold dear myself.”
