While supplies last! If you . . .

Banned Book Reading/Discussion
Leeward CC Student Life sent out a poll to students asking them to select one of these banned or challenged books for a campus-wide reading and discussion:
- Gender queer : a memoir
- All boys aren’t blue : a memoir-manifesto
- The magic fish
- Fun home : a family tragicomic
Currently registered Leeward CC students who provide their contact information will enter a drawing for a free Foodland gift card provided by ASUH.
Deadline is 5 p.m., Friday, October 13, 2023
Banned Books Podcast
