Utica, NY (WIBX) – The Utica Public Library and Utica College are teaming up to help call attention to this year’s Banned Book Week, by offering up a free book, a lecture and a discussion on the 1991 novel American Psycho, written by Bret Easton Ellis. 

About 20 copies of the book will be made available to participants wishing to partake in a Banned Book Week Forum, which will be held at the Utica Public Library on September 27th.

The forum will feature Utica College Education Department Chair, Doctor Lois Fisch, who will be helping to lead the discussion. She says Ellis’ American Psycho is a complicated book, which is why it is a perfect choice for the discussion.  “This book is much more vicseral and does push you right to the edge…and it’s a good read too” adding, “ It’s a pretty complicated book, which is why I feel it is a perfect choice. Is it a literary classic because of it’s coplexity and the complexity of it’s characters or is it terrible trash”. 

To register for this event and to receive your free book, just stop by the Reference Desk at the Utica Public Library. Again, the discussion will be held at the Utica Public Library September 27th at 6:30pm.
