A Banned Books Reading featuring a performance by The Prenzie Players will begin at 3 p.m. Saturday in the third floor conference room of Bucktown Center for the Arts, 225 E. 2nd St., Davenport.

The event, hosted by the Midwest Writing Center, is in conjunction with the American Library Association's Banned Books Week.

Local writers, artists and thespians will participate in the public reading of favorite passages from books, poems and plays that have been contested frequently in the U.S. As a new feature to the event, The Prenzie Players will perform a scene from Shakespeare's "The Tempest," which recently was challenged in Tucson, Ariz.

The event is free and open to the public; light refreshments will be served.
