In observance of Banned Books Week, September 27 through October 4, 2008, Carnegie-Stout Public Library is hosting Reading Lolita in Dubuque, a program to encourage Dubuquers to celebrate the freedom to read by checking out Vladimir Nabokov’s highly controversial and frequently banned novel Lolita, along with Azar Nafisi's bestselling memoir Reading Lolita in Tehran.
